David Reid-Marr graduated from Maidstone College of Art with a B.F.A. and received his M.F.A. in painting and art history from Royal College of Art, London. He organized and participated in many site-specific installations in England and Wales before coming to the U.S. to study Zen Buddhism. This led to an interest in the relationship between religion and our perceptions, and to a series of large format drawings, found-object sculpture and performance work, all of which have been exhibited throughout the U.S.. He is currently an adjunct professor in the Master’s program at Cal. State San Bernardino, and has an abiding interest in the theory and practice of alternative education. David has also published a book entitled “Emergent Teaching” which includes teaching anecdotes from Idyllwild Arts.
