Reggie Singleton was born and raised in Detroit. He began drawing at a early age. He continued art throughout his teens and eventually majored in Fine Arts at WSU. Singleton has studied figural drawing, as well as painting and design. The early Abstract Expressionists are also a love of his. Reggie's current work is evolving into an amalgam of the two.
I choose to frame many of the abstract sculptures I create. The frames are rectangular, square or uniquely shaped. The shape of the frame depends on the type of form that has been composed. Each one differs, and is as singular as a snowflake.
Reggie was inspired by artists such as Alphonse Legros, Mark Rothko and Franz Marc in his early development. Later on, trailblazers such as Sam Middleton, Romare Bearden, Joe Overstreet, Norm Lewis and Charles McGee would play key roles in his artististic thought.
