The body of work he created while in residency in London will be exhibited for the first time in A Way We Go.
“What I do is similar to the archetype of the Magician. I conjure these images which come to me like a day dream or a vision. They arrive as a seed which I then nuture and grow. The work is about the act of painting a window to a world and of fantasy, the surreal and inner experiences. The images appear to me and taunt me to re-create them into a drawing or a painting and then I work to make them into reality. There are influences that find their way into my art the works of my heroes’; Carl Jung, Dali, Peter Paul Rubens and Sci-fi and Fantasy Illustrators. My life experiences are portrayed and resolved through the artwork. The paintings take me somewhere: It’s a journey. The mystery of inner experience revealing itself along the way. “ ~ D.Reynolds
