Rinat Goren is interested in human beings as individuals. She celebrates the freedom we have and explores the boundaries we encounter. Inspired by individuals who use their mind to think and to solve problems, Goren expresses the human’s endless and diverse abilities. Her work conveys the abstract subjects of thoughts and mind work, connections and consequences within and between people. Goren’s art is an invitation to explore how thoughts are formed, how concepts are grasped, how decisions are made and how actions are a consequence of thoughts.
Rinat Goren was born and raised in Israel and moved to the US as a young adult.
Growing up, Goren always created and observed art but only as an adult she recognized art as her calling to be an artist. Starting with acrylics she later discovered encaustic and immediately made the switch. Beeswax turned out to be perfect for layering her abstract work and creating depth and volume.
Goren is inspired by people around her who are thinkers, innovators, problem solvers and decision makers. She adores human’s unique ability to think and apply reason and her art conveys - abstractly - the process of thinking, forming a concept, ‘connecting the dots’ and making choices.
Goren participated in numerous juried and solo shows and her work can be found in residences and companies in the Bay Area and the US.
