Tyson Reeder's paintings are eclectic scenes which embody a rich history of painting borrowed most noticeably from Fauvism and Impressionism. Colors are accentuated and dramatized. Space is often flattened or textured by the use of washy color, and mixing mediums of acrylic paint, pen and pencil creating areas of abstract depth in relation to his representational and often figurative subject matter. Though his work often includes clues to current fashions, the urban landscape and other signifiers of contemporary culture, Reeder's work feels rooted in a dialogue that spans several painting histories. Tyson Reeder's project room exhibition titled Sweaters features a collection of works on paper depicting ornate, brightly colored sweaters from different periods in different positions and poses.
