When asked to describe his particular brand of art in the one word, or at least through that one word seek to convey the singular element he’s striving for in his art, (already) acclaimed (and upcoming) contemporary figurative practitioner, David Rees decrees that it’s ‘encapsulating’. In as much as he’s perpetually searching for that quality which essentially draws the viewer in, holds them there and ultimately ensures that their time spent in the close company of his works is deemed immaterial. There’s no doubting in our minds that ‘Girl II’ fulfils this personal creative agenda with illustrative aplomb and a graphic volume.
The eyes definitely ‘have it’ as the viewer receives a visual sucker punch courtesy of the emotional fixation stemming from the expression; where for the most part those present can’t fail to be moved by the simplistic beauty of the giclee on boxed canvas study, on every conceivable level. Bearing the increasingly popular Rees’ moniker, this 28” x 42” limited edition release (launched as part of his Spring 2015 mini-series and restricted to just 95 examples) is available to pre-order now.
