    Artist Statement

    Graeme Reed's work seems to explore some of the confusion and absurdity that we’re all confronted with on a daily basis.

    His characters blankly stare out at us, seeking both our approval and our condemnation. 

    Riddled with insecurities, they explore the desire for both ‘fitting in’ and 'standing out'; seeking approval and ‘ruffling feathers’.

    Graeme Reed's recent series of screenprints playfully juxtapose conflicting fashion dilemmas with brazen posturing, to tease us with these everyday predicaments.

    He uses the process of combining and ‘layering’ disparate fragments from different sources, including magazine imagery, photography and his own drawing, which all adds to the sense of disorientation and ambiguity in the work.

    Graeme Reed graduated from Chelsea School of Art in 1989 with an MA in Fine Art Printmaking.
