Jim Reid

The painting sites I choose are places I have revisited since childhood, and so they are also saturated with personal memory.

To Jim Reid, nature is infinitely complex, enigmatic and resistant to human control. His work explores the order and chaos of nature, its fragility and resilience. For instance, his recent Feral series documents wild apple trees – once domesticated, now chaotic and dense – near his Terra Cotta home. His earlier Borderlands series explores transition zones between urban, farm and natural areas. Jim works from his studio at the Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre in Glen Williams. Throughout April he will have a two-person show with his wife Peggy Taylor Reid in the Caledon Town Hall Gallery in Caledon East. www.williamsmill.com
