This exhibition features the floral series Reiss started in 2007. Working beyond the superficial meanings usually associated with flowers, Reiss uses color contrasts to explore expressive possibilities in a luminous world of color, believing they take us to a deeper level of consciousness. Viewed from far away, the flowers become human scale with personalities of their own. At a closer range, viewers find man-made surprises such as graphic airplanes, cityscapes, and shapes that live in the space between leaves and petals. Also included are a series of miniature tableaux that explore extreme images seen in the media as representative of a new contemporary mythology.
