Lumen XVI is part of Mark Rediske's newest body of work. Says the artist "The last year has been an ordeal and a test of resolve to sustain hope, empathy and a reverence for beauty. [...]These paintings have a heightened sensibility of light and dark with the aspiration of light emanating through."
Rediske achieves an effect that gives his pieces a feeling of timelessness. Richly saturated hues are tempered by warm neutrals, rich blues and greens give way to soft golds. A master of his craft, Rediske’s panels are flawlessly executed. There is a relief in sharing space with his artwork; a calm, meditative quality extends from the pieces themselves, quietly inviting reflection and introspection.
