Lance de los Reyes believes that painting communicates certain truths and ideas. He employs symbolic imagery, structures, forms, color and patterns, to explore this communication through graphite drawings on paper and oil paintings on canvas. He often creates his works on the floor or pinned to the wall. The finished works are a reflection of his studio environment, showcasing raw markings and smears of paint that highlight his creative process. De Los Reyes elevates art making itself to a subject with spiritual power.
