Caleb Reid

Caleb Reid is an artist from Sydney.

Caleb Reid (b. 1988) is a Sydney based artist working primarily in painting. In 2015, Reid completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the National Art School, with a focus on drawing, ceramics and sculpture. Reid has held solo exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne, and has also been involved in group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including Berlin, Germany.

Caleb Reid’s recent work is characterised by an experimentation with process and the exploration of the relationship between creative and emotional forces. Asked about his process Reid expressed; “My process is playful, it’s emotive and immediate. I understand that if I set out a few paintings tomorrow, and then complete those paintings they can never, ever be replicated. Even if I set out the same canvas the day after. They are capturing a very specific moment in time.”

Caleb Reid has gallery representation with Piermarq, in Sydney, Australia. The Weight of Cold Meat: New Paintings by Caleb Reid was his first solo show at Piermarq and presented a diverse body of work, unified by a process of play, chance and intuition.
