Artist Statement

Reid Sancken believes his role, as an artist, is to entertain; to be very serious about being silly. His work is heavily influenced by the unexpected nature of improvisational comedy and grassroots music that readily reflects the unknowingness of being human. Using pre-manufactured objects as a structure to improvise around, his paintings, performances, sculptures, and installations are composed to keep the maker and viewer on their toes and asking, “what-the-who-the-Horton-hears-a-what-the?”
