Overview

Lauchie Reid is a Toronto _based painter and illustrator. As a founding member of Canadian art collective Team Macho, Reid developed a multi-_faceted and diverse approach to image making that expresses a love for outmoded techniques and aesthetics, a bizarre sense of humour, and a sadly sweet view of childhood, family and personality. Playing the role of documentarian, Reid explores the role of traditional portraiture as a relevant and timeless method of celebrating human achievement while rejecting the notion of reserving these rites to specific social classes. He has exhibited his work as a part of Team Macho in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Bordeaux, San Francisco, Amsterdam and most recently at the OPTICA Centre for Contemporary Art in Montreal, Canada (April 2013).
