Text for the exhibition In Front of Your Eyes at Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Greenville, SC

Reisman drives around her suburban Pennsylvania neighborhood, an area she’s lived in for over thirty-five years, for inspiration. Sketches suburban vistas from the driver’s seat and uses gouache to record the colors. Sometimes she’ll let go of the brakes and inch forward, the movement shifting her vantage point, helping her assemble a new and unsettling landscape. One where trees huddle together, mere inches from becoming intertwined. One where houses seem to encroach on one another, their windows facing out onto neighboring roofs and garages.
