Kit Reuther is a self-taught painter and sculptor. Her work plays with unconventional compositions: often pushing subjects to the edges and allowing a field of white, or negative, space to counterbalance the weighted perimeters. Reuther’s shapes are ever-evolving, becoming more geometric and formal, without being cold and hard-edged. Her wood sculptures are a combination of both found and manipulated materials. In 2014, she began to design new three-dimensional works for metal fabrication. The limitations of sheet metal have been a strong influence in how she sees and thinks about shapes going forward.
Her works have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the United States. She has received fellowships from the Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the VCCA International Residency Program in Germany, and the Contemporary Artists Center Residency in Massachusetts. Reuther work is in the permanent collection of the Tennessee State Museum, the Tennessee BellSouth Building, the Tennessee Senatorial Office in Washington D.C., and multiple Nordstrom locations–Hawaii, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Nashville)
She currently works and resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
