REYNOLDS

Reynolds studied painting with Richard Pousette-Dart, and printmaking with Ansei Uchima at Sarah Lawrence College, and graduated with a concentration in Women’s History. She also has a B.F.A and an M.F.A for School of Visual Arts. Her most recent one-person exhibit, “Puki Pacifista”, was at Studio.Ra in Rome, Italy in 2009. In 2010, she participated in “Paulo Freire and the Practice of Freedom” during Latin American Cultural Week at the University of London. In the same year, her prints were also featured in London Biennale NYC Satellite, at the Christopher Henry Gallery in NYC. A participant in the London Biennale since 2000, this is her third major event with Museum MAN. The first was a solo show with Museum MAN, “The Puki Adventus” in Liverpool, 2005. The second showcased a selection of prints in “Moving Mediators: Ghosts of Interventions Past and Present” along with David Medalla, Jill Rock and Misha Dare, in Valparaiso, Chile in 2008.

Reynolds is honored to once again collaborate with Adam Nankervis in another solo show — Antiquarian Adventurers: Dreamers of a New Day — the first featuring her intaglio prints. As the itinerant Museum MAN settles toanother vacant space in Germany, history’s home to the political and apocalyptic print, the venue provides a perfect introduction for her etchings.

“Abomination” was first conceived when Reynolds viewed the “Queen of the Night” at the British Museum in 2004. She was participating in “Precipitations”, a London Biennale event at the Kufa Gallery run by Mai Ghoussoub (www.times
online.co.uk/tol/comment/obituaries/article1511213.ece
). The two artists met for the second time at “Changing Channels”, curated by Adam Nankervis in Berlin in 2003. Mai showed her pictures of the looting of the Baghdad Museum that took place after the US invasion of Iraq. Abomination, the Quaker word for the occupation of Iraq, seemed an appropriate title, as the “Queen of the Night” stands witness to the resulting destruction of culture and people.

Reynolds would like to remember Mai and Dr. Donny George Youkhanna
(www.nytimes.com/2011/03/15/world/middleeast/15george.html), the former Director of the Baghdad Museum, who both suffered premature deaths. Both cultural warriors were able to own a copy of “Abomination” before they passed. May their memories be as long as the arc of history (www.virtualmuseumiraq.cnr.it/prehome.htm).
