Sleep Walking, 2005
Watercolor and Gouache on Paper
55 x 52 Inches

Just in at Sloan Miyasato Fine Art: a stunning, large-scale watercolor and goauche hybrid by Laurie Reid, curated by Michelle Bello. Reid opens communication between the past and present in this tour de force painting by utilizing a completed piece from a previous body of work as the foundation upon which the new painting was created. Woven into this earlier work are expressive and erratic roving lines–bent, segmented and rendered in bold colored gouache. These extend branch-like throughout the signature drips and whispers of watercolor that characterize her past work. This intervention reveals a lesson in coexistence as past and present imagery mingle and tangle together in shared space. A possible relationship between line and the support structure offered by the original painting is explored. While the original painting might be considered a fundamental armature, the additions can be seen perhaps as melody line or a kind of sly narrative voice that subtly adds its own two cents.

Laurie Reid received an MFA from California College of the Arts and a BA in French Literature from Reed College. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the country, including the Drawing Center in New York City and the Berkeley Art Museum. Reid was also the recipient of a Society of the Encouragement of Contemporary Art (SECA) award and was included in the Whitney Biennial. Her work is in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum, and Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
