A goldsmith at heart, Reid was most content sitting at his jeweller’s workbench, and the small-scale works he brought to life are poignant testaments to the deep joy he experienced creating art. As his artistic practice evolved and his connection to Haida culture deepened, Reid drew inspiration from well-known narratives, time and again inserting himself and his contemporary presence into an ancestral story. The monumental sculptural works that came to fruition with the assistance of many tell an equally important story. Ultimately, Reid came to prioritize the act of making, and its central role in the networked, animate relations of Haida culture.
