Corey Reid graduated from the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2015 where he discovered his artistic passion - woodcut - which has been the focus of his work ever since.
''The objective of my work is to utilise one of the worlds oldest techniques - woodcut - to produce and influence pieces that are contemporary and relevant in the twenty first century. All of my woodcuts are produced using handheld carving tools that have many similiarities with those used by traditional Japanese woodcut artists. Once a piece is ready I then use relief printing to complete my vision. I do use modern techniques and equipment, for example, when I produce larger pieces such as tables and chairs it is necessary for me to use modern machinery...''(Corey Reid).
