Even among centuries-established mediums, new methods are being discovered and used for the purposes of artmaking. Seattle-based artist Redd Walitzki, for example, laser-cuts oil paintings, resulting in images at once crisp as they are sprawling with imagination. Her latest work is on display through November 7 at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. The works in the new series, Exquisite Corpse, are described as “rooted in the transformation of decay into new life. These paintings explore the relationship between entropy and new growth; they pull at the petal edges of our fascination with death and the tragic muse. ”
