Elements of photorealistic anatomy drawings are blended with pop surrealist fare, combining anatomically-precise figures with strange, bug-eyed monsters, Classicist cherubs or geometric designs arranged in the background. Reedy uses his penchant for photorealism to create bizarre and sometimes haunting juxtapositions; we see characters with their internal organs and bones exposed, adding an element of vulnerability to his work.
