November Featured Artists: Reid Trevarthen & Corrin Lee
Reid Trevarthen’s artist bio:
I often say that my secret dream is to be an impressionist painter. I’m specifically fascinated by the way in which artists like Monet and Degas used light and color to not only depict their subjects, but enhance them. Their works make me feel like am actually seeing the world through their eyes, unaltered by time. These pieces are my best effort to mimic the qualities I find so evocative in their paintings using paper instead of paint.Before this body of work, I hadn’t yet attempted to use a realistic color palette in my work, under the assumption that it would take too long to hunt for just the right shade and color. Once I tried, however, I realized that using magazines that photograph reality means that I had far more realistic colors available than saturated magentas and reds. I also discovered that I only to had to approximate true color, in the same way that the Impressionists did, to achieve the degree of realism I wanted. Even the process of making these collages feels like painting.
Recently, I have been incorporating more traditional collage elements, such as inserting whole images straight from the magazine into my work. This allows me to inject humor into the pieces, and encourages impulsive choices. Including these images helps ground the work in the medium of collage, and keeps me from becoming too habitual in my process. I am excited to see what will change in my art over the next year.
