Jim Reid received a BFA from Mount Allison University and a BSc from McMaster University. His process-based landscape paintings embrace the Plein Air tradition of painting filtered through biology and environmentalism. He is represented by Lonsdale Gallery in Toronto. McMaster Museum Curator Ihor Holubizky wrote: “As he works on site, Reid allows nature to take its course, to show the accumulation, traces and scars, the evidence of erosion rather than the prettiness of “texturing”. At the same time he indicates the profound shift that has taken place in our relationship with nature and the possibilities of a spiritual resonance.”
