The longing for and the love of light comes from the full experience of darkness which starts in the womb. Ren Bo's work explores the interaction between light and darkness in conjunction with human experience and space. She uses composite materials, especially optical materials, which create a sense of stasis and stability, but at the same time convey movement - ambiguity and silence complement one another. The shapes of light are viewed entirely from the individual's subjective perspective; from another's perspective, light may appear wrapped in the darkness. Ren Bo views this ever-shifting relationship of subjectivity, light and darkness as a metaphor of the interaction between human beings and the universe.
