Artist Reisha Perlmutter at Artis-Naples

Nature, light and the power that lies in the connection to the body are the key elements that drive local artist Reisha Perlmutter’s current body of work.

Growing up in Naples, Florida, Reisha’s compositions are influenced by the nature of southwest Florida and its distinct elements. Reisha’s paintings are an exploration of how people relate to their bodies through nature, setting aside all superficiality.

Her subjects, typically women, signify the exploration of the relationship a woman has with her body. Reisha does this by connecting the human body with natural elements of light and water, creating a sense of vulnerability. The use of oil compliments the sentiment behind each piece, due to its organic and imperfect nature.

Reisha’s work has been shown around the world and can be viewed currently at Artis-Naples .
