3. Above it All
My name is Bridgette Reedy and I’m a 28 year old self taught artist. I find it’s easier to communicate complex ideas through images rather than with words, and that is why I’m so engaged in painting. I encapsulate numerous ideas in tangled and intricate scenarios which are based on feelings about the human condition. Some of the themes in my work represent troubling content, though I choose to use vivid colors to express the optimistic lens I view the world from, as well as depicting simple and exaggerated characters to counterbalance a harsher reality. My paintings come from a highly imaginative place, where childhood reverie come crashing into the material of adulthood.
