Description

The UNLV College of Fine Arts' Department of Art presents the Visiting Artist Lecture Series with Painter Jennifer Wynn Reeves.

The work of Jennifer Wynne Reeves presents viewers with a savvy, satirical world. Her robust paintings combine abstraction and representation with a graceful awkwardness deliberately echoing the discomfort of first-time encounters, and the wobbling efforts of first steps. Through her use of language, Reeves creates humorous and biting dialogues, monologues that are highly intriguing and thought-provoking. Reeves has been involved in over 40 exhibitions all over the world, most recently in "Second Coming: Backstage at the Dildo Ballet," at Ramis Barquet Gallery, NYC. A recipient of a 2012 Guggenheim Fellowship Award, Reeves is also an accomplished writer and has produced many statement pieces over the course of her artistic career including writing reviews for NY Arts Magazine and Indie reviews online. The artist lives and works in upstate New York.
