Artist Statement

Reese is an observational artist inspired by formalism. Lines, shapes, colors, and textures are as central to her work as is the process of creating them. A complex layering of abstract elements allows her work to echo the representational through symbolic formalism. Her most recent work focuses on the increasingly tethered connection between bodily autonomy and the global climate crisis. Embracing the body as the vessel and nature as the foundation of human existence, Reese seeks to generate conversations of sustainable choice through the lens of bodily autonomy and landscape.
