Fernando Reyes and Peter Dreyfuss in Room 302
Oakland artists Fernando Reyes and Peter Dreyfuss join together to create an exhibition where hand-printed paper cutouts meet sculpture in fabricated steel. These two artists join forces that explore the elements of art and design for a fresh view of contemporary art.
Throughout the years, Fernando has produced a large and diverse portfolio of artwork. His work has been primarily representational and includes oil paintings, drawings, and printmaking. His primary interest has been depicting the human figure which are straightforward and representational, often depicting a single figure, however in 2014 a visit to MoMA in New York for the Henri Matisse “The Cut Outs” exhibition made such an impact on Fernando that he embarked on creating his own cut outs. Subsequently taking his art making in the direction of abstract art in both paper cutouts and oil painting.
In January 2018, the Mexican Museum in San Francisco mounted an exhibition An Artist’s Evolution, a retrospective which has elevated Fernando’s exposure in the SF Bay Area and beyond.
Fernando has an extensive resume of solo and group exhibitions on a regional and national basis. His work has been acquired for the art collections of Sutter Cathedral Hills Hospital, Stanford University Medical Center, Alameda County Arts Collection, Amoco Corporation, Ruth Chris Steakhouse, Tom of Finland Foundation, Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, George and Cynthia Miller Wellness Center and numerous private collections.
