As part of the 2012 summer studio program at Ptojec Row Houses. Reyes’s installation La Cueva used string to address the theme of personal strengths. During the residency period of the Summer Studios, members of the public were given the opportunity to paint a piece of string with their favorite color, and to write on of their personal strengths on a small tag. Half of the string was braided into a bracelet for the person to keep as a reminder of his or her strength, while the other half was incorporated into Reyes’s installation.

Self Portrait Series
The Birthday portrait series started out of boredom and the idea was to create a self portrait with an elaborated backgrounds The following year I decided I would take one of this each year for my birthday with the only purpose of posting it on social media. Now days the Birthday portrait has evolved into a more complex project that is planned ahead of time and I now considered part of my artwork. The only rules for this ongoing project is that it must be a self portrait and that it needs to be released on the day of my birthday.

Melncolia at SITE Houston
The Washington Avenue Arts District curated an art exhibition transforming the honeycombed footprint of thirty-four renovated grain silos into site-specific contemporary installation. Jurors Bill Arning, Director of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and by Jillian Conrad, professor of sculpture at the University of Houston selected thirty Houston-based artists to be a part of this project.
The goal of SITE is to create an environment which promotes experimentation and fosters excellence in creative thinking. The architecture of the silos has framed the creative process and forced each artist to think about their work in relation to a unique space, resulting in new and truly site-specific artistic outcomes. Successful proposals were those that best responded to and transformed a single silo space, ultimately resulting in an exhibition that fully immerses viewers in 27 unique experiences. With SITE, the act of creation, as well as the act of viewing, is directly tied to the overwhelming sense of place that the silos provide. The silos evoke a strong sense of discovery and exploration.
