Reid Stowe's entire life
has been built upon his quest to enlighten humanity. He states he
tries to impart this by everything he does. At an early age he started
to build his own boats and sail them where others had yet to go.
He went on the 1st Arts and cultural mission to Antarctica to bring
world peace and art to a land wroth with beauty yet devoid of human
touch and expression. His crew were multi cultural so that added
yet another dimension to the whole.
He then with another young lady went on to spend 200 days at sea
to carve a gigantic sea turtle out of the Atlantic Ocean (Refer
to image). They live in a world where fast is the norm and miss
out on the wonders at hand. His paintings mostly done on sails are
an ever-changing array of statements all done with the same intent…
to give. He has now taken his writings and about to open a multi
media rock opera off b’way called “Sub-conscious Sea”.
He has done this to awaken humanity and to help fund what he hopes
will be my biggest quest of all.
His extraordinary spirit of adventure, as reflected in the Ocean
Odyssey, have attracted quality media coverage in recent years.
American publications, including NY Times, NY Magazine, Outside,
French News NYC, Cruising World, Motor Boating & Sailing, Ocean
Navigator, Boat International, NY Sunday Magazine, Off Shore, Conde
Nast Traveler, Sea Frontiers Magazine, Sail, Ad Astra National Space
Magazine, and Blue Magazine, as well as the international periodicals
Nautical Scene, Yacht, Journal du Dimanche, and Sud Ouest have carried
articles on what will in all likelihood be a historic voyage-with
global participation via floating technological linked to interactive

transVoyeur and the Artist
The concepts founding his art and adventures are one enlightenment
and shared experience and knowledge in the human condition –
an empathy. It is this process of his explorations he imparts a
consciousness and realisation of what constitutes humanity and embodied
in the visual language of his art. His stance on the multi-cultural
and universality of human experience is something synonymous with
the objectives of transVoyeur, to share an experience and nurture
an awakening of the import of each breath we take.
