The city trapped her with its technology and set off a new language within her... She holds her own personal language firmly in her hands... This work is by a woman who is bound to go far...
"Sheila Reid at Palazzo Arengario" by Pierre Restany 1977 (excerpts, translation)
My works come from precise pictures that I 'see' in my mind. They aren't an interpretation. The placement, proportions, the size and even the colors are very clear in these visions.
Soft Patterns were a pure, unadorned expression that was very intense because of the repeated patterns. They were shown in many museums, the Gulbenkian in Lisbon , the Utah Museum of Fine Arts in Salt Lake , Musée Luxembourg in Paris, and many others but my favorite was at Fyns Kunst Museum , Denmark where the panels were suspended as if they were flying.
