The Process. Reynolds's new work is working from photographs and digital drawings of women.
She draws the women on the iPad from photographs and then uses this source material to paint from. She colour plans the figures on the iPad saving money on paint; it also distances her from the original image, enabling her to paint the figure.
Reynolds is drawing with paint and is interested in making women the key figure in the work. Looking at the female gaze from different angles.
Currently, she is downsizing and looking at making smaller works, there’s more intimacy in smaller works Reynolds says. However she does enjoy working on a larger scale, scale is carefully considered when making a painting.
Reynolds is interested in the female gaze and her own experiences in womanhood. Looking at different compositions to portray her protagonists. Photography is a big influences in her work and is interested in how visual language changes from medium to medium.
