Horizons: New Work by
May 3 – June 4, 2013
Artist Reception: Friday, May 3, 5-8pm
Reynolds Fine Art is pleased to present new work by gallery owner and namesake, Robert Reynolds.
Stemming from numerous visits to the Netherlands, Reynolds new body of oil paintings and monoprints boasts vivid Dutch landscapes as its subject. The unique, tabletop flatness of this region sparked the artist’s curiosity when he noticed a recurring, and often over looked, feature that was unavoidable in each vista: the horizon. Thus, Reynolds was prompted to investigate the idea of the horizon in history and how we experience it everyday, whether we realize it or not. Questions such as if this line acts as a joiner or a divider between heaven and earth motivated the artist and come through each work to evoke feelings of longing and wonder in the viewer. These works challenge the mundane concept of a horizon line to become a desire to know the unknowable and mystery of the distance.
