Mark Rediske's artworks reference horizons, sky, and terrain. His color-washed surface patina conjures the erosion of ancient civilizations; his titles explore mythology and physical places, or are drawn from the past. Developing a process that allows him to achieve unique effects in his work, Rediske creates exquisitely crafted panels with beautiful colors and painterly mark-making. The resulting pieces invite close inspection at different times of day and night. Rediske's capacity for composition creates tension and resolution within each piece, while the slow fading from one color to the next provides a grounding quality to his work.
Mark Rediske holds BFA and MA degrees from St. Cloud University, St Cloud, MN. He shows his work across the United States, including at Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA. Rediske taught art at St. Cloud University, St. Cloud, MN; Pratt Fine Arts Center, Seattle, WA, and Oregon College of Arts & Crafts, Portland, OR. His artwork is part of dozens of collections, including American Airlines, Seattle, WA; The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC; Prudential Insurance Company of America, Newark, NJ; Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, WA, and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, Chicago, IL.
