Texas-born artist Anthony Reans has been painting professionally since 2001, and began his current abstract series in 2013, while earning his MA in studio art from Northwestern State University, Louisiana. He creates abstract compositions that concentrate on the connections between subjective reality, interconnectedness, spatial relations, surface, and perception.
