Meredith Remz Exhibit at Blawenburg Cafe
“BELLE”: The collage paintings of Meredith Remz are on exhibit at Blawenburg Cafe in Skillman through January 5, 2018. Remz says she draws inspiration from contemporary and industrial design, as well as Mother Nature.
Meredith Remz debuts her work at Blawenburg Cafe in Skillman this fall with a solo exhibition of expressive collage paintings. The exhibit will be on display through January 5, 2018. It is is free and open to the public, child-friendly, and all art is for sale.
Remz’s paintings are best known for their movement, radiant colors, and staggering birch trees. Several of her new works depict her sculpture roots in the way that she constructs deep layers consisting of latex paint, patterned paper, papier maché, and glue. “There is no wrong answer here,” said Remz. Additionally, Remz often trades her paint brushes for unconventional art-making tools such as kitchen spatulas, spoons, and wood sticks.
Remz says she draws inspiration from contemporary and industrial design, as well as Mother Nature. She was employed as a carpenter for a local construction company for many years where she was cross-trained in carpentry, sheet rock, and tile.
She is a BFA graduate from Mason Gross at Rutgers University. Her paintings and sculptures are featured in five installations within St. Peter’s Medical Center in New Brunswick and Carrier Clinic in Belle Mead. Her work can also be seen at Princeton Pi & Yogurt on Nassau Street, Collaboration Core in Lawrenceville, and the Boro Bean in Hopewell.
