90 THE LIST 29 Apr–13 May 2010
Simon Reekie Simon Reekie is an artist and educator, born and currently based in Dundee. He graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone in 2004 and later won a prestigious Fulbright scholarship to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Having originally studied biotechnology, Simon channeled his knowledge and experiences into his early work – uncanny, cartoonish portraits that display a forensic attention to detail. Simon’s fascination with the tactile nature of paint is most evident in his ‘Facescape’ and ‘Skinscape’ paintings. In these works, the surfaces of the paintings become flesh. Faces can also be found in Simon’s more abstract paintings: the cartoonish absurdity of the early portraits remains evident, but ultra-realism has been replaced by intuitive energy. Teeth, eyes, limbs and body parts (inner and outer) flow into and around each other chaotically jostling for space on the canvas. While Simon’s work was recently showcased in a solo exhibition at Dundee University, his newest work, a remarkable four-sided painting, was recently on display at Dundee’s Generator Projects’ annual members’ show. ■ www.simonreekie.com
