THE EXHIBITION

This exhibition reunites a series of intimate portraits of friends of the artist first exhibited in Seattle in 1997 at Collusion Gallery Unlimited. Sienna Reid’s use of traditional painting techniques, unique portraiture and lush colors fully capture the personality and sensuality of the subjects portrayed. With influences by masters such as Francis Bacon, Lucien Freud and Jenny Saville, this show exemplifies the current renaissance of figurative and nude art making waves world-wide.

THE ARTIST

Sienna Reid was born in 1964 in Port Townsend, Washington, a small town on the water with a lively artist community. From 1983-1986 she studied painting and printmaking at Western Washington University in Bellingham, during which she spent five months doing independent study in Europe. In 1986 she transferred to Seattle where she immediately began showing her work in both solo and group exhibitions, as well as curating shows by other artists. In 1990 she spent five months painting and studying in Mexico. From 1993-1996 Sienna attended the University of Washington in Seattle where she studied with the important figure painter Hanneline Rogeberg and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in painting and humanities. Since 1999 she has lived in Rome where she paints and exhibits her art.
