Drawing inspiration from geometric forms and universal patterns, William Reardon’s work blends technical design with a rich, emotive surface quality.
Born in Leicester in 1980, Reardon studied at Goldsmiths College and worked in London as a graphic designer and animator until moving to the West Country in 2011 to concentrate on developing his contemporary art practice.
Driven by the motivation to create art with a positive human message, he uses single words, statements and designs of a philosophical nature, which are inspired by current societal and technological advancement.
Through a process of gestural addition and subtraction, using paint and other media, Reardon attempts to reveal the organic patterns and textures of the natural world. To Reardon these patterns expose an underlying structure of reality.
A rich visual language is created; obscured layers of colour, texture and geometric forms interact to create a depth alluding to a meaning available beyond the sum of its parts.
