Tiffany Reid is a Canadian painter and mixed media artist. Being from the Pacific Northwest and experiencing the dramatic weather in the area such as cold winters and sensational storms, her work is heavily inspired by the currents of the ocean that serve to guide the weather of the area, as well as the gravity of nature that one feels so strongly in that area. As such, her paintings contain a compelling evocation of the delicate balance of chaos and order, as can be found in weather and earth systems. Reid also emphasizes the natural connection between the heart of man and the forces of nature, and in her work attempts to convey this connection.
Using her unique and non-traditional techniques involving various media such as isopropyl, textured pastes, resin, and recycled materials, Reid is able to create luscious paintings filled with bright organic bubbles of colors as well as sensuous textured surfaces that recall both the rugged power and fragile beauty of the natural world simultaneously. Through these enthralling compositions she seeks to create an emotional and sensorial journey for the viewer, allowing them to be transported to an unimaginable place where they can lose themselves.
