“Many people refer to me as an action painter. I paint as an artist with a physical and emotional approach which is an essential part of my finished works.”

“My process, sometimes involves splashing using gestural brushstrokes and dripping paint onto my canvas rather than carefully applying it as I did with my traditional earlier works.”

“I choose to explore the energy of my art in a sculptural way, building layer upon layer, color upon color.This visceral interpretation aligns with my intent to always paint in the moment, allowing the paint, the emotion, and the energy of the painting to direct what happens on the work itself.”

“In the late nineties, I began putting vignettes of drawings and paintings together. I then built fifteen foot panels of these fragments, creating the equivalent of abstract collage. These large scale pieces reflects my search for a non-routine way of painting. This new media approach paved the way for the works that followed, as I always try to carve out a distinct artistic style of my own. I hope you enjoy my latest work.”

The artist began his formal education at Ringling School of Arts but credits his mentors - David Anderson, Edgar Miller, and William Pachner - as the nuclei of his expression. Each brought his own specific influence and, as a result, inspired Reams' artistic candor. These three advisors allowed Reams to strive beyond the archetypal classroom education, thus focusing on actualizing his own style.
