The paintings and drawings of Michael Reedy.
Michael Reedy received a BFA Cum Laude from North Central College in Illinois and an MFA from Northern Illinois University. Portraiture is central to his artistic studies and has been for the past twelve years, he says. Reedy identifies a particular interest in depictions of the human body that fall outside the canon of art history, such as cartooning and medical illustration.
By mixing influences both from within and outside of accepted boundaries of fine art, Reedy aspires to locate unique areas of resistance, which he believes is essential to produce new meaning. His work has been exhibited across the United States and recognized with numerous awards.
