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

Most of Renata most recent paintings explore the genre of urban landscape but one devoid of people, showing a estatic narrative, concentrating on the symbolic possibilities of urban settings, plants that are well-established invasive species and outdoor furniture. Plants depicted by Renata tend to be alluring, broody, even beautiful yet monster-like, a Menacing Beauty.
