LAUCHIE REID: THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN

Friday, October 7th @ Narwhal Art Projects from 7:00pm - 10:00pm, Facebook Event page: HERE Narwhal is very pleased to present Lauchie Reid's second solo exhibition with the gallery, The World Turned Upside Down. In this new body of oil paintings, Reid continues his role as a documentarian, exploring the role of traditional portraiture as a relevant and timeless method of celebrating human achievement while rejecting the notion of reserving these rites to specific social classes. As much autobiographical as fantastical, Reid re-imagines his friends, family and heroes in historic settings, playing homage to their integrity and passion. Often depicting masked figures, Reid uses costuming to conceal their desire, intentions and fears. Reid skill as a painter lends each persona an air of grandeur and intimacy not often revealed.
