About Me
Born and raised in a small town in the Pacific Northwest, Sienna Reid is a multimedia artist working in painting, drawing, filmmaking, photography and ceramics among other experimental processes. A graduate of the University of Washington with a BFA in painting, since the age of 19 Reid has been exhibiting her work in the USA and Italy, and has work in private collections throughout Europe and the USA. Reid lived in Italy from 1999 until 2014 when she transferred to NYC, and currently works in her studio in Bushwick. Since 2007 Reid has been working on a large multimedia project which examines the media circus around the Amanda Knox trial in Italy, and the etymology and semantics of the words that were used to assassinate her character by the police, prosecution, lawyers, media and ultimately the anonymous online masses. Her work incorporates current and historic research on scapegoating/shaming, abuse of power, feminist/women's issues, identity issues, wrongful conviction, portraiture, and the use of words to harm the individual.
