"Fragments" - The Art of Deeann Rieves Exhibit

November 14, 2013 - January 25, 2014

Deeann Rieves is a mixed media contemporary artist working on wood, paper, fabric, and canvas. Her work combines painting with collage and sewing with forms that disrupt the surfaces to become their own organic forms of sculptural painting.

Biography
Deeann Rieves received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Memphis College of Art in December 2007 with an emphasis on painting. She works full time in her Marietta, GA studio and her mixed-media paintings have been featured in numerous solo exhibitions and juried group shows across the United States. Her abstract paintings combine mixed media and machine embroidery to capture transitional forms derived from nature.

Her new work will be featured this Fall at solo exhibitions in Memphis, TN in the South Main Arts District in October and at Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council (TRAHC) on all three levels of the gallery from November to January. Her previous series, Spills and Coverings, was featured in six solo exhibits, the first at Memphis College of Art’s Alumni Gallery in October 2010, later The Renaissance Center in Dixon, TN and more recently at Downtown Pres Gallery in Memphis’s gallery district in October 2012. Individual pieces from this series appeared in multiple group exhibits across the US-- Fiber Plus in New York, The Elegant Line in California, Fantastic Fibers in Paducah, KY, the Dogwood Regional Fine Arts Exhibit in Knoxville, TN, Fiber Focus in St. Louis, Missouri, and consecutive years at Metro Montage XI and XII at Marietta Cobb Museum of Art in Marietta, GA.


Artist Statement
"Painting and drawing work simultaneously as layers build—connecting paper fragments, mark making with embroidery, and smudging with chalk. The boldness of color and contrast collide with sensitive lines, intermingled with subtleties of texture. My focus is to balance delicate lines against organic forms and loose brushwork. I am drawn to the tactility that fabric and sewing add to the painting process. The nature of thread is strong but intricate; embroidery is permanent with the appearance of fragility.

In nature, colors and textures thrive or subdue during their life cycle, and my inspiration derives from the transitions that happen during this process. Leaves have subtle discolorations and flaws that create fascinating organic forms in contrast against rigid lines from disintegration or broken edges held together by a delicate framework of veins. I am most interested in this display of growth and decay because of how intimately it speaks of change."
