Hodges Taylor, in collaboration with David Lusk Gallery, presents the recent paintings and sculptures by Kit Reuther. The Nashville-based and self-taught Reuther has evolved over her career from realism to complete abstractionism.
Reuther’s playful take on the confines of geometry stems from her intuition, rather than any particular rubric or subject matter. She contemplates a canvas and shapes a sculpture with meditative restraint.
As Reuther states, “I try to avoid making art with an intended outcome or message for the viewer. My only real intention is to make work that pushes and challenges me and feels slightly odd and fresh to my eyes.”
Reuther’s casually elegant approach to line, form and color provide respite from rules and an approachable richness in their subtleties. Hodges Taylor will host an opening reception with the artist on Thursday, September 7 from 6 to 8pm and the exhibition will be on view from September 1 through October 27, 2017.
