Michael Reeder, Pushing Up Daisies

November 10, 2022December 12, 2022

Allouche Gallery is proud to present Michael Reeder's first solo exhibition with the gallery, Pushing Up Daisies. The exhibition features a new body of work focusing on the duality between life and death and what lies beyond. Known for his recurring theme of the human skull, Reeder imagines the form in unique compositions to connote the presence of life and death that once inhabited the vessels. Reeder believes there is a juxtaposition of both themes: “Both are undeniably opposite, with one unable to exist without the other…I find the consideration of both beautiful and eerie, and my work seeks to harness and portray the notion of duality.” The multi-media collection will feature the artist's first physically painted generative Cyber Bandit (based on his Cyber Bandit NFT project which generated 5,000 unique characters of the same name), six works featuring painted background layers that were scanned and directly used as traits in the NFT project, and unique series of the Deadman and Reaper motifs on wood panel and paper.
