Bob Braine and Leslie Reed exemplify eco-artists. No matter where they are, New York City, the Hudson River Valley, Germany, South America or eastern Long Island, they explore a locale in depth –understanding, recording, commenting upon, and testing positive interventions relative to the interaction of people and their environment. Their works are conceptual, witty, realistic, and restorative.
