Welcome to Mick's New & Used Art where you'll always find the finest in new and previously viewed art by painter and illustrator Mick Reasor. As the exclusive Northern Minnesota provider of work by Mick we have the selection, service, low overhead and generous trade-in allowance the big city dealers just can't match.
As a painter Mick has worked primarily in landscape. From the large non-figurative oils of the 1980's to the smaller more representational gouaches of recent years, the paintings have shared an organic form and a nominal sense of place. Most recently he's abandoned color and started sticking trailers and tractors in thoses places. The fine art offerings also include some examples of drawing and printmaking including a flurry of sketchbook activity beginning in the mid 1970s.
Mick produces illustrations in both painterly and cartoon styles. Give the man a contract and a deadline and stand back. Do you need anthropomorphic amardillos? Do you need perky paraplegic hispanic girls? Maybe repurposed royals fit the bill? Mick is your man!
During his 2016-2017 sabbatical Mick produced a series of monochromatic gouache paintings inspired by his dubious recollections of a life on the road. His military family, with five kids and a dog, drag a canned ham trailer along Mid-Century America's highways. The paintings can be seen here. A chronological blog documenting the creative process can be seen here. Mick also wrote a book featuring the paintings. See a preview of Tin Can Life. There are also soft cover and ebook versions available here.
Mick's 2009-2010 sabbatical project included writing and illustrating The Book of Cowboy Job, a retelling of the biblical story in cowboy verse. He also created a body of small but insignificant paintings. The fruits of his labors can be seen here.
Here is visual blog documenting Mick's foray into selling tiny art in online auctions. Or maybe we could interest you in a nice tote bag.
