Artist Reception and Performance: Saturday November 20, 6:30-10:00pm (performance 8pm)
Bleicher/Golightly Gallery presents a striking solo exhibition by contemporary figurative painter Courtney Reid. Journeying further into the realms of single motherhood and influenced by realizations in neuropsychological theory Reid’s work has become highly focused and potent. Working in a smaller scale to capture transcendental moments in a shorter time frame, Reid expresses her experiences of harmonizing motherhood and a love of painting.
Her bold paintings use intense heavy brush strokes, revealing spontaneous reaction to life. Courtney’s superb unification of traditional and contemporary paint styles, combined with her brilliant use of color revive a powerful awareness of painting, while demanding a visceral response from the viewer.
