MARK REDISKE | LANGUAGE OF GRAVITY | ADVANCE PREVIEW

For more than two decades, Mark Rediske created his sought-after color field paintings while laying the panel on a flat surface. In 'Language of Gravity,' he experiments instead with painting upright on an easel. The resulting downward pull of the paint enhances Rediske's distillation of skyscape and atmosphere. Alternating between areas of transparency and opacity, the paintings convey the essence of vast expanses of space and light.

My recent paintings represent a departure in terms of medium and technique. For most of my career I have worked on a flat horizontal surface with a variety of different materials and mediums. For this show I have been utilizing an easel and integrating the influence of gravity to manipulate acrylic paint. This has given me a new array of possibilities for experimenting with the physical properties and expression of this versatile medium.

There is a gravitational pull that holds us to place and time; to memory, hope, loss, and desire. It is my aspiration that my work inspires some common thread to the universal forces that unite us.      - Mark Rediske

Mark Rediske's artworks reference horizons, sky, and terrain. His surface patina and color wash conjure the erosion of primordial landscapes; 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. Beautiful colors and painterly mark-making result in pieces that invite close inspection at different times of day and night. Rediske's capacity for composition and fluidity creates tension and resolution within each piece, while the slow fading from one color to the next adds a grounding quality 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.
