About
Studio Member since 2010

b.1972

Brian Reed’s art practice is driven by his inquisitive nature. The contemplative quality of his artwork extends a feeling of intimacy to the viewer, as we observe the result of his exploration of the people who inspire him and the animals that intrigue him.

“I want to make something great. I love making. Working with different things. I am very happy because I feel great about them. Working with my hands is difficult sometimes. I love to do it…it’s fun.”

Reed experiments fearlessly with materials and continually welcomes new challenges. This is most evident in his three-dimensional works constructed with a variety of mediums. The resulting forms are at once brutal and elegant. His affinity for learning extends to teaching. Reed’s professional development focus is on education, and he has led art demo at a local preschool and at our North Shore studio.

“I enjoy learning because I want to grow. I like being with the kids. They’re so cute! I like working with them and seeing them grow.”

Reed was the North Shore studio’s artist of the month in June 2018.
