NASHVILLE, TN – Kit Reuther’s “Assembly” is a solo exhibition of paintings and sculpture on display Sept. 2-Oct. 17 at David Lusk Gallery Nashville.
Reuther has developed a reputation for inventive use of found materials including packing tape, Styrofoam, fabric scraps, concrete and plaster. For “Assembly,” Reuther uses wood for the 3-dimensional works and scraped and scrapped painted surfaces for the paintings.
The carved, chiseled and chain-sawed wooden sculptures are assembled on a custom platform in the center of the main gallery space. Influenced by the bold drama of Brutalist Design and the stylized nature of Scandinavian fabric prints, Reuther employs aggregated shapes, fluid forms and stacked sections to highlight the natural beauty of wood.
Large scale paintings and collages accompany the installation, mimicking the modern totemic forms throughout her large-scale installation.
Kit Reuther is a born and raised Nashville artist. She was awarded artist fellowships from the Vermont Studio Center and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.
She participated in the VCCA International Residency Program in Germany and the Contemporary Artists Center Residency in Massachusetts. She exhibits frequently in San Francisco, Santa Fe, Charlotte, Atlanta, Nashville and Memphis.
