Tennyson Reid

"Warrior Portraits"


FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 29, 2006

Over the past nine years, Tennyson's work has evolved from the traditional woodblock printing technique to a very contemporary style of printmaking. Using the portraits of Plains Indian warriors, he looks for images that show the pride and dignity of men who were recognized as warriors among their people. The creation of the woodcut begins with carving of the birch wood block which is then inked. "I use a water-based ink that is rolled onto the plate in various directions and add different colors of ink during the process". After rolling the ink, paper is then placed onto the block and rubbed by hand. By using his hand, Tennyson is able to manipulate the boldness of the ink transferred to the paper.

The Warrior Portraits exhibit at the Southern Plains Indian Museum is Tennyson Reid's first solo exhibition. Tennyson has received awards from the Tulsa Indian Art Festival and the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, IN. He has participated in other Fine Art shows across the United States, displaying his original Hand-Pulled Limited Edition Prints. The American Indian Sports Council has commissioned him to create ten images of past and present athletes including Jim Thorpe and others.

Additional samples of Tennyson Reid's work may be seen on his website www.travelinghorse-artgallery.com
