We are also extremely pleased to announce that the Scottish painter Paul Reid will be exhibiting with Isis Gallery in London. Dates to be announced.
"Since he burst on to the British art scene three years ago, shaking up received notions of what contemporary art was about, Paul Reid has been gathering a loyal audience with his unique take on the apparently redundant tradition of neo-classical painting. Yet he has also made as many people wish he would go away. His art is unlike anything else you will see on the contemporary scene."

Reid's extraordinary works are so out of kilter with the current herd of post-Kippenberger Philip Guston vs Terry Richardson Dumas/Tuymans copyists that his crafted explorations of myth, drama, composition and process seem positively anarchic.
