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.
