To Love was made for the What Is The Point? exhibition at Adam Street Private Members Club, London, UK. Each of the selected artists created a unique artwork made in response to the exhibition title.

 

Private Collection

 

 

Artwork on this website has been made during the "first three" years since Reeve graduated from Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) in 2012, where he received the Vernon Crowther Prize for Painting from Sylvia Ackling, and Roger Ackling (1947 - 2014). His work is in the collections of NUA, City College Norwich and Sir John Hurt.

 

Reeve’s iconoclastic urges are manifested through his canvases; however compassion and humour often belie the destruction.

 

Some paintings comprise of found objects; whilst others adopt the cut-up technique (découper) pioneered by Dada artists and associated with Matisse.

 

Sculptural works include Symphony in D (Major) - currently featured on the 2nd floor screen in the Saatchi gallery London, and No Shelter: Mother without Child exhibited in the Correspondence exhibition held alongside the Moore in Focus: A Friendship in Letters exhibition at the world renowned Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

 

Reeve is currently researching ideas for new works and will only be exhibiting once during 2016 at Mandell's gallery, Elm Hill, Norwich [see NEWS for details].
