Artist Alan Reid Is Breaking Up the Band

Alan Reid, The Gesture That Broke the Band (2008).

Alan Reid has been busy with his coloring pencils, fashioning majestic women into insipid, sometimes silly situations: bored fashionistas wearing yellow slippers surrounded by headless men; a turbaned beauty sharing her single bed with exotic animals; and here, a despondent bohemian wearing her withering underwear on her head. Reid's coloring is as delicate as his women are elegant; his drawings view like an illustrated version of Eat, Pray, Love. Reid is on show at Lisa Cooley Fine Art through the end of the month.
