Ornamental Breakdown by Edinburgh-based artist Bernie Reid


Bernie Reid (b. 1972 Stirling, Scotland) is a Leith-based artist and a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art whose body of work over a 30-year career includes mixed media paintings, trompe l'oeil decorative rugs, graphic screen prints and sculpture. Reid often employs mediums and techniques associated with graffiti such as stencils and spray paint in his work. His mixed media paintings use these techniques alongside traditional oils to depict abstracted and psychedlic figurative forms influenced by the subcultural practices of sampling and hacking established culture in order to create new identities. Realised with the generous support of VASTINT, Ornamental Breakdown features newly-commissioned works conceived for the exhibition. More information can be accessed on Bernie Reid's viewing room, here.
