A retrospective is a major event for an artist, a chance for the artist to reflect on a lifetime of work to contemplate and reassess then share their story for all to view. In fact most artists never have the opportunity. A few decades ago this was an honour typically accorded to a deceased Old Master.

John (Keith) Reed. Born (1944) in England, he arrived in Dunedin in 1954 and studied at the University of Canterbury from 1963 – 1968. Considered one of New Zealand’s leading landscape watercolourists, achieving phenomenal success in this difficult medium. Keith also paints in oil.

Although his style over the years has been predominantly expressionist, in viewing his art school years you can see the strong influence of abstraction and cubism. An influence that since retiring from teaching has returned with considerable success.

Exhibitions Gallery of Fine Art is proud to be part of this major event and would like to thank Keith for providing all the wonderful material and salute him for having hidden gems from his early childhood through to his current work. We also appreciate the release of early work from his private collection which is normally unavailable to purchase. – Ron Epskamp (Exhibitions Gallery)

A 16 page booklet detailing Keith’s journey will be available at the exhibition.
