Meredith Remz: “A Collage Retrospective”

Meredith Remz’s collage paintings and furniture are heavily influenced by contemporary and industrial design, as well as Mother Nature. Her carpentry background lengthens the legs of her unquestionably polished works. Her current paintings are a runway, upon which she catapults latex paint onto earthy layers of patterned, sealed paper. Movement, created by the wisps of her leaves and trees, is a principal characteristic of Remz’s work.

Remz’s exhibition features iconic images of the Borough of Princeton, New Jersey, and Remz’s sculpted hardwoods. The artist’s images concentrate on lowering the contrast between the natural, asymmetrical beauty representative of Mother Nature’s paintings and sculptures, and the works manufactured by humans.

Meredith Remz is a BFA graduate of Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, and her work is home to four installations within St. Peter’s Medical Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
