Beverly Rautenberg is an Interdisciplinary Conceptual Artist. She began her artistic practice working in abstract photography. A few years later, she began to expand her practice to include objects, text and language. Her work is very small and intimate and is almost always square (she has had an ongoing passion for the square form for the last fifteen years and it will not go away!). It combines the reductive formalism of a minimalist aesthetic (heavily influenced by the work of Donald Judd's trademark 'stacks' of the 1960's) with autobiographical subject matter.
Although material is important in her work, unlike the practitioners of minimalism, it is not the sole intent of the work. Material, color and surface are used as signs and signifiers and function as indirect forms of communicating personal narrative. Wood (poplar) is the main material she uses for most of her work. She then adds other materials such as aluminum, archival pigment prints, enamel and thin black sheets of rubber. Her fascination with language and text is also evident in her work, in the form of repetition and wordplay, which is many times interjected with humor. Even though she references personal experience throughout her process, it is important to her to have the viewer bring their own subjectivity to her work, rather than accepting hers as the only interpretation.
Ms. Rautenberg earned her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited her work in galleries and museums throughout the country, including the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) Chicago, MASS MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art), Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art and the Contemporary Museum of Baltimore. Her work has been included in the 2012 Berlin Biennale, Art Chicago 2007 (The Artist Project) and AAF, New York City. In 2014, she was awarded a CHANGE, Inc. Grant (Robert Rauschenberg Foundation). Ms. Rautenberg lives and works in suburban Chicago.
