RiskPress Gallery is pleased to present Bodies In Relief,
a solo exhibition by figurative artist Fernando Reyes of Oakland,
CA. The relief prints created by Reyes depict the human form in
a dazzling array of colors, perspectives, and moods. The works exhibited
here are all on paper and include woodblock prints, linoleum block
prints and monoprints.
Reyes is known for his exquisite linework. Originally inspired
by the old masters, he maintains the time-honored practice of drawing
regularly from live models. The traditional methodology, however,
produces works that are completely contemporary. Though all the
pieces are essentially representational, some of the works depict
juxtaposed and overlapping human forms in varying dimensions that
create an illusion of abstraction. Other works are of a single figure
and have a simple, sensual beauty.
