Shelley Reed
Gull (after Bogdani)

2017

About

This piece features a Gull bird, styled after the artist Bogdani. It is an oil on paper piece that is monochromatic, or black and white. Reed's primary focus has been the rich vein of Northern European art from the mid-17th through 18th centuries, a period of enlightenment and profound interest in science, nature, and the animal world. Animals were assigned human traits (peacock:vanity; dog:fidelity), and nature itself was considered a symbol of God's providence - a commonly held belief within the stratified, gentry dominated social order of the time. Reed (b. 1958, New York, NY) lives and works in Boston, MA. She is a recipient of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts Maud Morgan Award and a Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant. Her work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums and can be found in public and private collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Wellington Management Company, Boston; Fidelity Investment Corporation, Boston; the Hallmark Collection, Kansas City; the Lila Acheson Wallace Collection, Pleasantville, NY; Bank of Boston; the Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA; Danforth Museum, Framingham, MA; and the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA.
