Curator’s Statement

Ed Ruscha’s signature style combines words and images on the same visual field. By doing so, visual and verbal means of communication coexist and create a sense of friction. The words conjure mental images that do not necessarily describe what the eye actually sees in the painting.

Michael Reeder’s figurative art explores concepts relating to identity. By constantly working in a free-flowing manner and allowing his subconsciousness unlimited scope within his creative process, Michael’s portraits remain open-ended; encouraging conversation and welcoming the projection of our own self-identities.
