"It’s a part of my current body of work that focuses on portraiture and a range of themes. Some of the themes include identity, ego, and the internal and external self. This piece in particular was meant to focus on the release of the internal self.
I don’t typically sketch anything out as it’s more of an organic type of process. So, this was somewhat rare that I made an initial sketch for the design. However, it was completely necessary so Jonny and I could get on the same page. I also utilized one of my paintings titled Head Fake for the halftone facial elements and I really wanted to use this opportunity to push the graphic qualities that I use in my work such as patterns, graphic gradients and transparent layers." - Michael Reeder
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Centered on portraiture, Michael Reeder's current body of work seeks to make a direct connection with the audience. This connection encourages viewers to bring their own perceptions, imagination, and vision to light alongside his own. He avoids narrowing his conceptual focus in order to allow content to be found and seen for the first time. Although Michael is technically orchestrating the process, he does his best to remain removed just enough to let the work veer off-course and locate its own destiny. Throughout his work, realism is mixed with flat graphic space, and themes or motifs of identity, ambiguity and ego are loosely implied. The convergence of infinite space and the figure highlights the realm of contemplation located between the conscious and the subconscious mind.
