Madame D Contemplating the Infinite

by Dean Reynolds

Regarding his work, the artist says:

I have been drawn to spiritual ideas, both East and West. The idea of the material and the mysterious internal has always been great interest of all religious and spiritual practices. The eastern ideas of the mind and material influenced this work. The reality as a summation of our physical perceptions, the mind is what gives those memories, sensations, and feelings significance. Looking inward is a journey of looking outward. Contemplation of oneself, meditating, relaxing ones problems of the now, opens the cosmos, broadens our own selves, the inward becomes the outward.

Dean Reynolds was born in Los Angeles, California, where he later performed on stage and screen. He went on to get his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting at Northern Kentucky University and his masters degree at Arizona State University.

His work is influenced by science fiction, fantasy, fables, myths and fairy tales. His work in the entertainment field also finds its way into the work. There are homages to Surrealism (Dali and Magritte), Lewis Carroll and The Wizard of Oz. In the end they are windows to his take on the world.
