Random Symmetree

Kevin Reilly’s Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibition Random Symmetree  features more than 30 images of complex compositions.
“I’m taking artistic license to play with your mind, and to make you look and figure things out,” says Kevin Reilly, of his work. “I’m trying to deceive you. I’m trying to play with what your vision sees.”


The show explores the splendor of forests and the damage done to them by humans. It features complex compositions with varying levels of symmetry and saturated colors. Some images have a stained-glass quality to them. Some include bits of black humor. In one piece, a billboard obscures a patch of woods.
