Anna Reid

I frequently wander in and out of websites, following links until I’m lost in a maze and have no idea how to get back if I even wanted to. It was on one such occasion when I discovered Anna Reid’s artwork.   I emailed Anna explaining about my two exhibitions this year and queried whether she would be interested in taking part.  Just getting a reply is exciting so a positive reply from Anna was double the excitement and then trebled when she said yes to both exhibitions.

Anna is creating three artworks in response to my Olveston poems, Main Street Arrowtown, Olveston, and Not quite perfec.

Living next to the Otago harbour for twenty years, Anna’s eye has been drawn to outcrops of land and water, and consequently a number of Anna’s works have represented this study. Her focus is devoted to exploring and experimenting with different mediums, especially when combining print making with painting.

It has always been her intention to represent an area yet allow the viewer to question and determine their own conclusion.
