Jodi Reeb

Jodi ReebJodi Reeb is a visual, fine artist from Minneapolis specializing in fine art abstract, collage, sculptural, contemporary, landscape, acrylic and encaustic paintings for sale. The process of change in nature is a constant source of wonder and inspiration that She tries to mimic in her work through the combination of beeswax, acrylic paint and texture. This process of change and transformation is supported by integrating many different media such as collage, encaustic (molten beeswax), printmaking and acrylic paint on various sustainable substrates.
As a mixed-media artist, Jodi creates her art using acrylic paint, encaustic (molten beeswax) and collage on various substrates such as wood, canvas and paper. Primarily working on commission, she enjoys collaborating with clients to create artwork that leads her to the next step in the progression of her process and development while complementing an existing space. The focus of her artwork has always been about the beauty of nature and finding inspiration from the extraordinary colors and light. As she explores this idea, she has been intrigued with nature’s ever-changing seasons. Jodi often contemplates how nature relates to our cycles of existence. In this new series of work, Jodi uses contrasting materials and substrates to create works that oscillate between painting and sculpture.
Jodi uses solid substrates made of wood and circular acrylic panels using encaustic (beeswax) and acrylic paint as well as metallic paints that transform or react when combined. Combinations are discovered, explored, proposed, rejected and accepted as part of the art-making process. Components are moved around in varying compositions. Some paintings are created to be part of a series and some are partnered through discovery. Through this approach she discovers relationships between the elements creating rhythms, patterns and visual textures that are nature-based as well as abstract. Over time, contrasting or common elements form connections, which is what she is really hoping to explore through this interaction. Jodi applies changes in texture and color by painting diverse surfaces with unusual materials such as beeswax and metallic paints that patina when they interact and create something new.
Jodi begin with a layer of paint or a structure, and from that point on, it becomes about process; making marks and textures, applying materials, responding to each action with a reaction. In this way, spontaneous connections are valued as highly as are planned compositions. As each work evolves, it gains an identity that eventually solves itself through process, positive and negative space and dimension.
