In his work Hirst, who is based in Chicago and is one of Reeb’s mentors, “investigates the relationship between architectural structures and the natural landscape.” He is concerned with how these two forces coexist in an urban environment. Dannelly is also a Chicago artist. She turns to nature for inspiration for her encaustic sculptures. Although her sculptures resemble natural objects such as pods, cocoons, and sea anemones as well as cellular structures, they are unique abstractions.

Snidle creates abstract paintings with encaustic which “communicate a feeling of potential and possibilities,” Reeb says. Reeb often works with circular assemblages that oscillate between painting and sculpture. “The circle references centeredness and wholeness, and expresses my attraction to negative space. I also appreciate that a circle is an organic and geometric shape.”

“We’re excited to be presenting a medium-centric exhibition focusing on encaustic, which has been gaining popularity with artists because of its vast expressive potential,” says gallery co-owner Anita Sue Kolman. “Guests and collectors will have a wonderful opportunity to see the varied ways in which encaustic can be utilized and implemented in both flat and sculptural forms, and will enjoy the wonderful applications of encaustic on view in this exhibition.”

Reeb lives and works in Minneapolis. She has been a full-time artist for more than 25 years and has received numerous awards. Her work has been shown nationally, and it is in many private and corporate collections. Reeb earned a Bachelor’s degree from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design where she taught printmaking in the Continuing Studies Program for almost a decade. She is a Golden Paint Artist Educator and an R & F Paint Core Artist; she teaches monthly classes about acrylic and encaustic painting.
