Los Angeles-based painter Kelly Reemtsen‘s work focuses on well-dressed women toting household tools that range from mallets and hammers to power saws, each held in a causal position that demonstrates a comfortableness with the object in-hand. Each woman is anonymous, her head not included in the cropped images of dress, heels, and tool.
Her bright, impasto paintings juxtapose bright dresses and power tools to wonderful effect. It’s a delightful combination of 50s housewife-meets-B&Q. Love it.
