Reicher received his BFA in sculpture from Alfred University in New York and his MFA from the Wichita State University in Kansas. After graduate school Reicher spent a year in Tallin, Estonia on a Fulbright Fellowship. Post Fulbright, Reicher returned to the states and relocated to San Francisco. He found artistic representation with The Braunstein/Quay Gallery and was introduced to the San Francisco art scene in 1993. Working with familiar forms such as the cup & saucer, box, cane and envelope, Reicher creates narratives that lead the viewer to accommodate and assimilate ideas regarding the way these objects and materials touch and support one another. Often playing with the contrast between the weight of the matter and the lightness of the gesture, Kyle Reicher fabricates steel pieces with a minimalist approach, then marks them with a story: balloons and steel kites too heavy to fly or plus-size wishbones and horseshoes, suggesting an equally-sized wish for good fortune. In fabricating these whimsical objects out of steel, Reicher freezes time and space, reminding us that the world is still full of magic.
