This art series was created 18 years ago in explosive colours aside monochrome geometrical shapes, pays homage to the power of human touch and connection using humanity’s most intimate form of expression – the kiss. Inspired by the birth of her children, Renk infused this series with the release of emotion felt when her baby would kiss her. The sleepless nights, unconditional love, parental pressure and self-sacrifice was instantly made worth it as soon as the baby “reached out to me with her gorgeous little lips – just one tiny kiss”. This sense of connection felt through our lips followed through the series as the kiss was further conceptualised for the artist’s other relationships and the different connections provoked by her mother, friends and, of course, her beloved. One kiss makes everything so much better!
