Sam Reed‘s work represents a sacred realm of spirituality and emotion that stands apart from social constructs and narratives to explore the abstract idea of metacognition.
The experience of making work is a spiritual one for Reed. The process of the work’s creation is more important than the work itself. The finished artwork is an experience rather than a material object. Using mediums such as charcoal and paints, he performs a ritualistic process of creation, using his body to paint and become a part of the work itself.
