Brenda Rehrig: Visions
ON VIEW: June 7 - July 21, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, June 7, 6 – 9 PM
HATHAWAY is proud to present Visions, a solo exhibition by Brenda Rehrig. Rehrig is an Atlanta based artist, whose work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions, placed in private and corporate collections, and selected into various juried painting publications. Her paintings explore texture and luminosity using the encaustic medium.
My work speaks of nature and the rhythms of nature. Each painting begins with a color concept referencing an idea or a natural thing. The materials used are natural beeswax combined with resin and colorants applied to a wood substrate. This combination of materials is applied and fused over a long expanse of time, the buildup is a paradox of intention and chaos. I am deliberately looking for expression without the use of imagery.
