Swimming to Finland
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.
