Macon Reed is a multi-disciplinary artist who makes sculptures, drawing, video, photographs, and audio documentaries. Her current studio-based work examines the lines between transformation and failure, trauma and healing, playfulness and escapism. She makes sculptures which then act as props in performances that force the sculpture to undergo a form of physical transformation through exposure to fire, fireworks, water, or use by human bodies. These performances are then documented in photography and video. Her use of color is strong and unapologetic, always bright. In addition to her art studio practice, she also organizes summer camps for young women and produces stories for radio and considers these to be important extensions of her artistic practice.
