Michael Reeder is a Texan-born, Los Angeles-based artist who is a contemporary portraitist. He uses figurative distortions and symbolic dislocations as a vehicle for the expression and examination of identity. Reeder’s controlled chaos is as evocative as it is strategically unsettling, using various mediums, he creates works that express imagery that is loose enough to encourage projection and tight enough to direct association by tapping into the subconscious. He inspires a new sense of surrealism, with portraits of a limitless visual resource.
