“Reaney has grown up in a landscape from which not only the people disappeared but the houses in which they once lived are swiftly fading out of sight. He is the visual keeper of this crumbling memory. He keeps alive those forgotten homes like the language that was once spoken inside. He paints the emptiness with an extraordinary force, an extravagance of colour that was once there in the people he grew up with, in each house, in the stories and songs they left after them. His work is both a lament and a roar at forgetting, the shadows we fear in ourselves.”
