Susan Reedy’s multi- media work explores and responds to facades, most often in urban areas, that are in a state of flux due to the passage of time, exposure to the elements, and neglect. Both the works on canvas and paper are suggestive of exterior surfaces that have accumulated fragmented remains of text and pictorial graphics that evoke a sense of place, temporality, and memory.
Reedy’s work has been exhibited widely, including solo and two person exhibitions at OK Harris Gallery, Hewitt Gallery, Castellani Art Museum, and the Amherst Museum. Group exhibitions include Pierogi Gallery, Islip Art Museum, Albright Knox Art Gallery, and the Memorial Art Gallery. Permanent collections include the Castellani Art Museum, Memorial Art Gallery, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Mobil Corporation.
