Actual Size Los Angeles is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Autumn Ramsey and Tyson Reeder.


Ramsey's and Reeder's work encourages critical discourse while drawing us into an enigmatic and intuitive reasoning. Evoking references from Fauvism and Impressionism to music and fashion, their works combine art historical and pop cultural allusions using a diverse range of images, materials and applications. Ramsey's paintings and Reeder's painting and sculptures are orchestrated with an informed viewer in mind, but they also make a broad range of references feel immediate, contemporary and lucid.
