Inspired by dreams, sci fi, and solarpunk ideas, Reeves depicts shifting, post-dystopian worlds and beings. Meditative drawing, spills, spray paint, brush, and carving the painted surface are techniques used by Reeves to highlight the act of making. Saturated colors, neon, iridescent, metallic and matte paint play with the tension between layers and space. Reeves’ open ended narratives found through a blend of abstraction and representation invite viewers to imagine the story details behind each piece.
