"Damon Reaves is a multidisciplinary artist exploring issues of identity and social interaction. His work converts the abstract concept of identity into a physical form (most often liquid) that is applied, worn, and dripped off. Drawing on a background in theatre, his pieces explore that ways in which we "perform" who we are."
Damon has exhibited at The Audrey Fienberg Gallery and the Valley Art Center. He received his MFA from The University of Pennsylvania in 2008 and his BFA from Miami University, Ohio in 2001. In 2005 he was awarded the Emerging Artist Award by Sankofa Fine Arts Organization, and in 2008 he was awarded the The Locks Foundation Post-Graduate Fellowship.
