Roland Albert Brener

Painter and sculptor Roland Albert Brener’s early artworks contained strong conceptual elements that derived inspiration from music, literature, politics, and African and Latin American culture. Later, Brener incorporated consumer items and experimented with kinetic sculpture driven by electronic motors and computers. Using the computer as a design tool, he produced fantastical distortions of digital images and everyday objects that were eventually fabricated in wood and synthetic materials. “My hope is that all my art, whatever medium, expresses a feeling of common humanity towards others,” Brener said.
