Magali Reus. Red Roses shows the extraordinary artistic practice of this internationally acclaimed London based artist and winner of the prestigious Prix de Rome 2015. The publication features a range of recent works. Reus’s work explores our relationship with utilitarian objects and the inextricable context of consumer society. Her virtuoso objects appear functional, but do not explicitly reveal what their function actually is. By investigating our relationship with objects, Reus is looking for a strategy to critically interrogate the production and consumption processes of our society.

Magali Reus (b. 1981, The Hague) has been creating hyperrealistic sculptures for more than a decade. She represents, redefines, enlarges and deforms everyday objects in various materials and using surprising combinations of digital, manual and industrial processes.
