Paul Reid's classical compositions have been attracting acclaim since his degree show at Dundee College of Art. He is well known to The Scottish Gallery and he continues to mine the potent imagery of the Greek Myths as preserved in Ovid. The brutality and amorality of the original texts is respected and the artist resists adding new symbols for a modern interpretation. Instead we are invited to make our own, personal conclusions in witness of the hubris and nemesis, clash of cultures and wild and civilizing influences still at play in our 21st Century lives.

Paul Reid will be the subject of an exhibition in March 2017.
