Samuel Reeder

I desire physical, bodily validation that stems from personal history as a child model. Drawing from my experience with digital communication for sexual pleasure, I negotiate power dynamics through an overt yet coded language found in contemporary queer culture.   


Neon light is provocative, sexy, and assertive, a material that needs to be seen. With communication through text and form, my work arouses sensation and potential appeal in a viewer that could otherwise remain silent.
