About Robert Reeves

Robert L. Reeves was born in 1970 to a desperate runaway who sold him to gypsies who in turn traded him for a bag of seed corn, some magic beans, and a carton of Kools to a lovely couple from Waterloo, Iowa who raised him as their own. He thus began his life in much the same way he was destined to live it: going several directions at once.

Reeves received a BA in Art with honors from the University of Northern Iowa in 1994 all while pursuing interests in film, theater, and music. He has been creating and exhibiting for over 20 years; creating works of public art, personal works, and commissions for private individuals and businesses. His paintings and drawings can be found in corporate and private collections in the US and Europe. Working primarily from photos taken while chronicling his time spent walking the earth Reeves creates moments of personal significance and striking balance. His painting style employs rough, energetic handling of his mediums, deep contrasts, and highly saturated colors. His work is not merely a study of form, light, and color, but also of his (sometimes erratic) states of mind. He strives to share that portion of experience that cannot be conveyed accurately through words. He seeks to move beyond the source and convey something of the experience with his audience. To bring them into his world if only just to dip their toes in it for a bit.

Robert currently works and lives a very full life in Des Moines, Iowa.
