The first UK solo exhibition of LA-based artist Kelly Reemtsen; a survey of the artist’s prints and works on paper spanning the past five years.
Reemtsen’s graphic works recall the purpose of early printmaking, to share a message. This revolutionary undertone is energised by the inherent beauty and delicacy of the imagery and the technical proficiency of her printing methods.
Best known for her works depicting beautifully dressed women wielding construction tools, Reemtsen addresses the paradoxes of being a woman in today’s world. Her work expresses uncomfortable truths surrounding issues of gender inequality with power, poise and elegance. In these prints, strength and beauty not only coexist but enhance one another. Reemtsen’s women remain anonymous and, importantly, universal.
