October 27–November 21, 2023
Opening Reception and Artist Talks: Friday, October 27, 6–7:30pm
Infused with a sense of scientific aura, moral lesson, and morbid entertainment, Michael Reedy transports viewers to another plane and space. Inspired by historic medical illustrations, Reedy poses new and unique questions regarding gender, pleasure, pain, and interpretation that expand the boundaries of contemporary figurative artwork – all while residing in that liminal place in-between the grotesque and the beautiful.
Michael Reedy is Professor of Art at Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti, MI and lives in Ann Harbor, MI. Reedy received a BA from North Central College, Naperville, IL and an MFA from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL.
