Emmanuel Torres writes: “(Cid Reyes) leans toward a more systematic Apollonian sense of order reining in the exuberance. Reyes does not have much use of local color to unify the chromatic richness of their palette.” While his colors are suggestive of shaded undergrowth, they flowed in, through and all over the canvas to impose control and definition. What is noticeable is the way the painting display strokes as sensual rather than threatening. Cid Reyes synthesizes sensuous painter lines with his own highly personal formal vocabulary.
