About the Exhibition

Mark Rediske's muted palette reveals increasingly abstracted and gestural imagery in a series of timelessly elegant works. Rediske is interested in the malleable and transparent qualities of wax that he uses to create meticulously layered works in oil pastel and encaustic. Building up color and wax allows for a constructive and destructive process as the artist abstracts the picture plane by drawing on and scratching away the surface of each piece. 

He says of his creative process, "I draw my inspiration in part from the timeless belief that nature has both a physical presence and a spiritual identity. Ideally, I see my paintings as a bridge between the natural world and archetypal symbols of rebirth and evolution. In this regard I feel a great affinity with the iconography of ancient civilizations."
