Process Proud

Mario Reis's concepts have potential, but the results are banal

You get a sense that Reis is trying to present himself center stage without appearing to do so. In all the work, the focus seems to be more about "see what I, the artist, do," rather than the end product. In the end, the blindfold drawings are the most successful because what the artist does and the end product are inextricably linked. They are successful enough to stand alone as artworks without leaning on the artist's process to make them more interesting.

Mario Reis's blindfolded drawings are subtle and 
elegant -- and they look like pubic hair.
