This is the official website for Erik ReeL, contemporary artist addressing post-conceptual issues related to mark making and signification.


"ReeL's technique exhibits a high degree of transparency, layering, sfgraffito and graffitto, with a strong sense of hand, the hand-made, and an absence of any references to the material world. This work can be seen as a thorough-going critique of materialism, the machine or machine-made, and the triumph of feeling over the manufactured. For ReeL, marking is a defining characteristic of  human being and the primordial act of signification and meaning for human consciousness."

- Nikki Arconi
