Renata groups her works under series for the sake of cataloguing her output. As it happens works can be linked by subject-matter, support, materials, colours and even presentation. Yet these series intermingle, feed on and invade each other, opening paths to new bodies of work. Above all, several series could develop at the same time, while not one ends to never emerge back again: Renata does revisit past works quite often, making her process one that is self-referential.

Most of Renata most recent paintings explore the genre of urban landscape devoid of people, concentrating on the symbolic possibilities of plants that are well-established invasive species. Tropical Flowers also feature prominently on her most recent works, in colourful ink drawings on wood, that include the Venezuelan colloquial names of these flowers in rub-on Letraset characters. There is in all of her works a static narrative: Devoid of people, these works tend to depict urban settings, albeit one where plants could be monster-like. Outdoor furniture stands for absent people, taking upon a symbolic role.
