Jim Rennert (United States 1958 -)


Jim Rennert was born in 1958 and was raised in the Southwest United States. Rennert began exhibiting his work in 1993 and has since become an important figure in contemporary sculpture. Rennert’s work is exhibited regularly at important American art fairs, in addition to galleries throughout the US and Canada. His works can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide, including monumental bronzes at Palisades Village in California, and the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pennsylvania, as well as a collection of multiple sculptures throughout the town of Naples, FL. Notable public exhibitions include his iconic “Think Big” which debuted in June 2014 in New York's Union Square, now permanently installed on 34th Street, as well as the 2020 exhibition, “Jim Rennert: With These Hands” a collection of monumental works presented at the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden in West Palm Beach, FL.

Rennert's work is figurative, emphasizing movement, action, and contemplation. Looking at various aspects of business life, Rennert presents the contemporary businessman's daily struggle with himself and others. Shifting away from the more refined detail of his earlier sculptures, Rennert's recent works have become increasingly cerebral, with softened characteristics allowing a broader representation of any given person. This reflects a greater focus in his body of work on the everyday challenges faced by any individual, so as to invite an immediate connection with all who view his work.
