RERO’s work, while instantly recognizable from his distinctive visual style, contains within it an inherent fluidity as he explores myriad social concepts, from technology and consumerism to language and obsolescence. He continually stretches the boundaries of his artistic mediums, often choosing to forego traditional surfaces on which to plant his minimalist statements. RERO’s text, always in the same Verdana font and stripped of any flourish beyond a bold strike-through line, become embedded within the medium, acting as a literal and material addition while simultaneously a marker for deconstruction.
RERO’s interventions within the urban and natural landscapes continue to influence his participation in the gallery setting. His pieces are found on canvas, vintage books, neon, fine china, statuesque busts, plaster walls, decaying newspapers, typewriters, flags, and much more. RERO presents these objects with his text as the image, thus provoking the sense of image negation, a continuing thread throughout his body of work. Having developed an evolving fascination with the relationship between the exterior and interior realms and the boundaries that define them, RERO has notably placed himself at the forefront of the urban conceptual experience.
2017 marks the first step in the collaboration between the Montresso* Foundation and the artist RERO. Invited for a residence at Jardin Rouge, he participated in the second edition of the XXL program which brings together four contemporary artists around the question of monumentality.
Once again, in the ocher city in May 2018, the foundation accompanies RERO in the realization of IN-SITU installations in the Agafay desert giving rise to a photographic edition.
In june 2018, The Montresso* Art Foundation supports the artist RERO for the realization of two installations and a mural in the city of Essaouira for the General Assembly of Citizen Entrepreneurs & Organizations.
