Contemporary figurative American painter Michael Reeder employs the use of flat graphic expanses of space alongside colorful patterning in conjunction with realistically rendered areas of human anatomy. Reeder brings opposing multimedia multilayered elements together in harmony to create bold and dynamic images. He uses fictional characters as a method of the self and its participation in society. Reeder's work has evolved over the years to reflect a more indirect self portrait that allows him to share more personal interests and themes such as the relationship of ego and the inevitable imminent death of the human.
