Randall Reid Opens Solo Show at William Campbell Contemporary

Painting alumnus RANDALL REID, of San Marcos, will open a solo show of his recent work at William Campbell Contemporary Art in Fort Worth this Friday, May 10th during an Opening Reception from 6:00-8:00 PM.  The exhibition is titled Resurrected Dreams: Cowboys, Aliens & Espionage.

Largely informed by personal interest in old television series, movies, and 1960s sci-fi, the new pieces explore our collective pop-cultural history Resurrected Dreams is the first body of Reid’s work so tightly focused on specific themes. He has cropped, painted, and otherwise manipulated found graphics to highlight theme and pictorial quality, along with structural elements, color balance, and texture. Of the new work, Reid comments, “I feel I am arranging layers, passages, ambiguous realities, and figurative elements, which can become narrative anthologies.”

This exhibition continues through June 15th. Works in the exhibition can be previewed at William Campbell Contemporary Art.

Reid also has a solo show which opened in Santa Fe last Friday. Randall Reid: Full Circle is currently on view at Nuart Gallery through May 19th.  A review of the exhibition by Tor Travis can be found at the Santa Fe Reporter.
