Steven Reid

Less is More

No Reception.

Steve Reid, Artist

Steve Reid was born in Scotland and studied art in Glasgow. After immigrating to the United States, he worked as a jazz percussionist and also studied floral design with Dries Alberts from the Netherlands, a sculptor-florist-philosopher. Steve stood on panels at several international floral competitions and continued floral studies at the NY Botanical Gardens. Floral design for Steve became a window to the study of composition, space, line, color and harmony. Gradually it led him to 2 and 3 dimensional works with the exploration of new mediums and materials. In recent years, he has studied at the Art Students League.

His other exhibits include: Blue Hill Cultural Center; The Flying Pig Gallery; Niagara Bank; The Crooked Halo; Outside-In Piermont Gallery; Nyack Artist Walk; Hoboken Arts Studio Tour; Pascack Valley Hospital; Pearl River Library; and Woodstock, NY galleries. His works are also held in private collections.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The visual inspiration and glimpses I receive from the outward world inspire me in simple juxtaposition interpretations. The more a viewer meditates on the work can alter the relationship with a greater awareness both consciously and unconsciously. It is more about subtraction and fragmenting the ideas so what is left produces a stronger visual reality. Where there may be influences of Pop or Minimalism, I strive for the wholeness and concreteness that doesn't hunt you down, but has its own breath, a quiet breath that actually slows the world down without hiding completely any secondary conceptual undertones. It is a quiet that is similar to standing on the beach, staring at the horizon or staring at the moon.
