This event has ended.

Nicelle Beauchene Gallery presents Cellar Door, a project space exhibition with Brooklyn-based artist Alan Reid.

Alan Reid’s meticulous acrylic on linen paintings amalgamate traditional painting and illustration techniques with varied references from histories of design, architecture, and art. Direct observational painting, airbrushed details, and a repertoire of pochoir illustration commingle to produce trompe l’oeil textures of fabric or folds of paper; rendered photoshop collage; dye stains and spatters. Language commands each composition through beguiling single words and short phrases, the messaging dressed in dutiful typefaces. Reid’s paintings suggest an attention to the mechanics of painting as an object, posing structural queries into the poetics of image-making.

Alan Reid (b. 1976, Texas) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He has had solo exhibitions at Mary Mary, Glasgow; Lisa Cooley, New York; A Palazzo Gallery, Brescia and Patricia Low, Gstaad. Group exhibitions include Miguel Abreu, New York; Situations, New York; Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York; Jacky Strenz, Frankfurt; Poker Flats, Williamstown; and Inman Gallery, Houston, among others.
