Melanie Reed at Gallery [context]

Melanie Reed makes wonderful abstractions that explore beautiful contours, arabesque, tones and textures with vivid colors in the mix.

Surprisingly, these images are made from collage. I know, right? Amazing.

As an artist, I am often deconstructing works in my minds eye. One of my favorite things about good craft is this sense of intention, the sense that things are where they are in an artwork because the artist created the condition on purpose, towards a specific result.

It was a surprise to learn how these were constructed. Check out the near seamless use of line, the placement of objects and then remember that these images are created out of other images… Super Fun, huh?

Here are a few of our favorites from Melanie Reed, currently on view at Gallery [context]. Enjoy!
