"Michael Reeder’s figurative art explores concepts relating to identity. He is currently focused on examining the defining elements of the individual which together create the distinct formation of self. Through repeatedly working from the limited reference of one person, whom Reeder himself does not know, he constructs a fresh identity with each new painting. Cleverly utilizing ambiguity, Michael’s protagonists live in a kind of limbo, where their identities appear within reach, often being strengthened and aided in their definition by the clean, crisp contours of their graphic and voidlike backdrops, yet their personalities are somehow blurry and distant as if a key component is missing. 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.
Michael Reeder was born in Dallas, Texas in 1982. He graduated with a BFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Since then he has pursued a career as an exhibiting fine artist, alongside the work he does as a freelance graphic artist and also his work at Eyecon Studios, a custom mural and design company based in Dallas.
