Abbe Resnick, aka Arez, is an artist who was born in Brooklyn, NY and lived on Long Island. She is working now just outside of Philadelphia with her studio located in Exton, PA. As far back as she can remember the passion for exploring and creating art has always been apart of who she is. Incorporated with her Fine Art Associate degree, she is mostly self-taught and continues her education through workshops and creative classes.
At one point to supplement her income while in school, she was an airbrush painter creating scenes on motorcycles and vans. Presently she is a professional cosmetologist for the past 30 years, which has helped to continue her to channel her artistic side.
Exploration of representation; juxtaposed with abstraction is what she is working with now as she continues to form her craft.
We see wondrous, beautiful and colorful reality everyday. The object for me is not to reproduce reality but to bring an experience to the viewer through Abstract Expressionism. I currently use oil and acrylic within the same painting to create my pieces.
