Artist Kelly Reemtsen’s body of work, in addition to the modernist subject matter, is her use of white paint. The Caldwell Snyder Gallery showcases her online exhibition, and notes that, ” Her use of white space serves to isolate the objects she renders, as if to revere these past art forms she so adores.”

I have to say her work reminds me of another favorite - Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud use white is a similar manner (below).

The kids and me recently went to the National Gallery of Art (east wing) in DC. We took a photo of Thiebaud's originals.
I am sure I will post on Reemtsen's work again. You need to see her iconic paintings of women with tools. She amazes me.
