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.
Expanse consists of 16 individual panels each measuring 23.5 x 23.5 inches.
