Centered on portraiture, Michael Reeder's 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 his own. He avoids narrowing his conceptual focus in order to allow content to be found and seen for the first time.
Although Michael is technically orchestrating the process, he does his best to remain removed just enough to let the work veer off-course and locate its own destiny. Throughout his work, realism is mixed with flat graphic space, and themes or motifs of identity, ambiguity and ego are loosely implied. The convergence of infinite space and the figure highlights the realm of contemplation located between the conscious and the subconscious mind.
