Mark Rediske's artworks reference horizons, sky, and terrain. Certain elements conjure ancient civilizations; 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 true encounter. 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.
