'Changes in texture, from flesh to clothing to hair, are executed with illusionistic magic. Some portraits are made more disorienting, through use of perspective, Reid’s shallow relief carvings portraying the figure from a bird’s-eye view or from the side'.
'Reid's Christ offers no apologies.'
(On The Paris Christ)
Reid's work 'gives a sense of vulnerability and challenge' (Mark Vernon Financial Times Jaunary 2005)
'These figures seem more alive than the word "figure" or "sculpture" implies... Reid seems to have re/created creatures that have their own existence in mind... his "people" seem to scream, albeit silently.' (Bex Shaw on Chorlton Mill Solo Show, August 2001)
'Its embodiment is modern, sexual, accessible... Reid's work clearly touches a nerve, for nudity, theology and representation are a heady mix, powerful but dangerous.' New Statesman February 2001) New Statesman
