Warren Reeson added to roster of artists at Details Past & Present

White Key by Warren ReesonArlene Rice of Details Past & Present fine Art Gallery welcomes to the gallery, Warren Christopher Reeson. “His work will add an interesting dimension to the stable of fine artists on exhibit,” says Rice.

Warren Christopher Reeson was born in Plymouth, England in 1966. He studied painting at The Royal Academy Schools London, 1985-88 and was awarded the Winsor and Newton prize for painting by the Academy at the R.A premiums exhibition in 1986.

Warren moved to Canada in 2002, initially to the Okanagan Valley British Columbia, and to Charlottetown Prince Edward Island in 2007. Since moving to the Island Warren has completed several large scale public art projects including murals in the Robertson library at UPEI in 2010 and 2012, a mural in the foyer of the Royalty centre for Sports P.E.I in 2012 and murals for the town of Montague Art Walk and the exterior of the Voluntary Resource Center in Charlottetown 2014. Warren began exhibiting his work in 1980 and has participated in many exhibitions both in Canada and the U.K. Including having been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, on several occasions and his work being selected as the first painting to be bought for the De Laszlo Art Foundation collection in London 1988.

“My intention is to paint pictures that evoke a feeling of mystery. I am very interested in history, music, archaeology, folklore and faerie tales. I love old books old buildings and museums. I try to introduce elements of these interests into my work. I want my paintings to feel as if they are already old, not as if it they were just painted. I often create many layers when I paint, leaving other images under the surface. Knowing that these other layers are there, that the painting already has a history is part of my creative process. I prefer to paint from my imagination combining elements of fantasy and reality. My work is often illustrative, and although a narrative may be suggested through the subject matter, they are intended to remain elusive and open to interpretation. I hope to give the viewer a feeling that there may be more happening just outside of the picture plane, something that can’t quite be seen, but know is there beyond the edge of the picture.”
