John Reynolds lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. Over the past three decades he has established a reputation as a painter who employs aspects of drawing (sketches, plans, charts, doodles) and different types of representation (expressive marks, symbols, patterns, writing) for poetic effect. Not content to be pigeonholed as a painter, he also incorporates sculpture, installation and site-specific outdoor works into his practice. These include, Kaipara and Snow Tussock and Golden Spaniard commissioned by Oceana Gold for a heritage and art park in East Otago.Read More
He is also recognised for the diversity of his practice and ability to work in a variety of scenes such as - architecture (with Nicolas Stevens), fashion (with Workshop, World and Karen Walker), music and publishing (record, book and magazine covers) and television (Questions for Mr Reynolds documentary with Shirley Horrocks and Works End with Chris Knox for Art Land). Reynolds is also the recipient of a Laureate Award from the Arts Foundation of New Zealand. Recently Reynolds and collaborator Arch MacDonnell produced CERTAIN WORDS DRAWN, a book that celebrates the range of his work with writing by 12 contributors. The book is a finalist in this year's Montana New Zealand Book Awards.
