About Michael


Michael Reedy received a BFA Cum Laude from North Central College in Illinois and an MFA from Northern Illinois University. Portraiture is central to his artistic studies and has been for the past twelve years, he says. Reedy identifies a particular interest in depictions of the human body that fall outside the canon of art history, such as cartooning and medical illustration.

By mixing influences both from within and outside of accepted boundaries of fine art, Reedy aspires to locate unique areas of resistance, which he believes is essential to produce new meaning. His work has been exhibited across the United States and recognized with numerous awards.

"Michael's work is downright insane. From the water-tight technical execution of the medical anatomy to the subtle additions of glittered organs and googly eyes, I'm completely obsessed. Recently, Arch Enemy has had the pleasure of exhibiting his works, and I must say, it's quite a distraction to have his beauties hanging so closely to our offices. I'd bet that at least once a day one of us can be found face to face, inches away from his pieces, gushing over a new detail we've found and loved."

MY REVIEW
pic a; lonely but not deserted by love
pic b; through assessments and questionings, man gets answers via intuition to his relationship with the structure/mater/forces that constitutes or carter for the universe.

Beautiful scary work. Great job.

Freezing "his" butt off? That's a woman.. You can clearly see her bosom. I prefer the bottom image though. The small angels or demons surrounding the heterosexual couple. They have abyssal thoughts and one is either putting or taking away a halo from over the woman's head. Alluding to Adam and Eve maybe? They have great bodies and I notice no sutures in their skull so they're definitely around late 20s or early 30s physically. The showing of the male's ribs.. all of it nice.

I really like the second one, it's hardcore.

We need more nudes, because the human form is the most intriguing subject in all art.

its amazingly insperational and insiteful into the human mind.....to me it is saying who r we where do we go from here and how uncertain we r ower selves.....we may say we no whats up next but in truth we have no idea

you have a brilliant sense of deep self accurasy I would love to see something more beyond reality serealism the uncerainty is reprsented to the bone it leaves me wanting MORE !!!

Beautiful... more, please.
