Naomi Reis

Brooklyn, USA


b. 1976   —   Naomi Kawanishi Reis makes 2D works using everyday materials of paper, fabric, blades, and brushes. This takes the form of murals, paintings, and drawings that focus on idealized spaces—the utopian architecture of modernism, conservatory gardens, and recently, still lifes from living rooms and dining tables. She has exhibited at Youkobo Art Space (Tokyo), Transmitter, Mixed Greens, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Wave Hill (NY), among others. In 2018 she received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant, and was a 2015 NYFA Finalist in Painting. Residencies that have supported her work include Yaddo, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, and the Lower East Side Printshop. A founding member of the artist-run gallery Tiger Strikes Asteroid NY (2012), in 2015 she co-founded the collective AN/OTHER NY: a nomadic workspace for Asian art practioners to gather through reading groups, workshops, and public events. She received an MFA from the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania, and a BA in Transcultural Identity at Hamilton College. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
