John Reynolds’ Blutopia designed by Inhouse, NZ
John Reynolds is a New Zealand based contemporary artist, Arts Foundation Laureate, Sydney Biennale headliner and Walters Prize nominee. John began painting large abstracts, moved towards work with a typographic foundation, and has also produced masthead and spreads for Home magazine as part of a feature and interview piece.
Blutopia is a full colour reproduction of John Reynolds Bluetopia series from 2014 which uses form, image, type and composition, bound by the theme of blue, to draw on association and make connections that are both visceral and intellectual. These connections are explored by Laurence Simmons as complimentary essays.
Blutopia is published by Six Point Press, is a collaboration with creative director Arch MacDonnell, and features cover and layouts by Aukland based design studio Inhouse.
