My external sensory experiences that come from natural and manmade materials, forms and color are the basis for the spontaneous compositions that I produce. I start fast and finish slow, so that the work can develop reactively into complex new realities. I am fascinated by how one can influence the other, how they either collide or repel, and how they can blend into a harmonious co-existence. 

With black and white works, I intentionally create ambiguity between what is positive and negative space in the compositions. For works in color, I often use micro pointillism to optically blend complementary colors. The result is a subtle vibration on the picture plane that keeps the viewer’s eye scanning the painted surfaces.  



R. Wayne Reynolds was born in Arlington, Virginia on February 22, 1953. A visit to the National Gallery of Art at the age of five, combined with regular visits to the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum made an impermeable impression that formed the foundation for his love of art and nature, and set the standard for his creative work. Reynolds received his BFA in Painting from The Maryland Institute, College of Art in 1975. After 20 years of hard work as a gilder, Reynolds returns to fine art and gallery performances, showcasing a lifetime of developed skill and a passion for process art.
