For this exhibition, Reeder will be featuring works on paper and/or cardboard that deal with the odd juxtaposition of plants and distorted heads. Collage elements, loose mixed-media paintings and diptychs will create an interesting and sometimes messy installation.
Artists such as Jean Fautrier, Francis Picabia, Charles Birchfield and Jean-Jacques Audobon have been running through Reeders mind.
