From Brandon, Manitoba, Reid blends elements of her Ukrainian heritage, drawing and craft to create work that is both humorous and disturbing. Baba-Yaga figures - chicken-legged, witch-bearing houses - move around threateningly in drawings, while odd figures that resemble ‘Bunnies’ and others still that resemble cats are drawn into urban environments as what one can only interpret as marauding gangs. She has also made dolls based on these latter forms that are installed into the exhibition space bringing their malevolent presence to the exhibition itself. Simultaneously humorous and unsettling this work explores issues around marginalization and urban decay.
