Ego and Identity by Michael Reeder
He was named Muralist of the Year in Dallas, and completed his latest RedBull House of Art residency in Detroit. "Centered on portraiture, my 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 mine. I avoid narrowing my conceptual focus in order to allow content to be found and seen for the first time." Michael Reeder says of his work.
"Although I am technically orchestrating the process, I do my best to remain removed just enough to let the work veer off-course and locate its own destiny. Throughout my work, realism is mixed with flat graphic space, and themes or motifs of identity, ambiguity, and ego are loosely implied." Reeder said.
