“Oaks may fall while reeds stand the storm” Reed Bmore (°1992, Manila, Philippines) is a street artist who works in the media of wire. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of a systematic world, his artwork references childhood expression as well as the avant-garde for expressing materiality. His artworks question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations, and ideas normally function. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, he makes work that generates diverse meanings. Associations and meanings collide. Space becomes subjective experience and the experience is honed by the viewer. His works demonstrate how life extends beyond its own subjective limits and often tells a story about the effects of social and cultural interaction. It challenges the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own ‘logical’ and ‘playful’ selves. By studying sign processes, signification, and communication, he investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination. His works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. Reed Bmore currently lives and works in the city of Baltimore, Maryland.
