Reed’s abstract paintings-about-painting combine aspects of historical styles—the dramatic lighting of Baroque painting, Abstract Expressionism’s expansive gestures, Minimalism’s pristine application of paint—with forward-looking techniques that stress fluidity and motion. Speed builds, stops, and builds again in works whose cinematic horizontality conveys the passage of narrative time. Here the vertical line dividing the image suggests a mirror or parts in dialogue. Lush but artificial color adds urgency to looping painterly gestures whose paradoxical precision appears almost photographic. Reed’s paintings examine moments of time as if they were palpable and visible.
