Paul Reed, the renowned Washington, D.C.-based artist and founding member of the Washington Color School. The focus of his career has been on color and the interplay with surface and light. Paul Reed has created luminous paintings— stretched, not stretched, square, rectangular and dynamically shaped, on canvas, muslin and paper—that explored transparency through a range of subject matter spanning mandalas, biomorphic shapes, discs and geometric abstractions.

Paul Reed Biography

Paul (Allen) Reed (born 1919) is an American artist most associated with the Washington Color School and Color Field Painting.

Reed was born in Washington DC and currently resides in the Virginia suburbs outside of DC. He attended and graduated from both San Diego State College in San Diego, CA and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC. Reed’s group show debut was in 1958 in the Watkins Gallery, American University. He and a few of his select his contemporary peers made a splash in a 1965 group show at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art entitled The Washington Color Painters. Also called the Washington Color School, this group had a profound influence in the abstract arena and the pushing of artistic boundaries from mid-century forward. His first solo show was in January 1963 at the Adams-Morgan Gallery in Washington, DC. In November of that same year, he had another solo show in the East Hampton Gallery in New York City.

From 1962 to 1971 Paul Reed served as Art Director for the Peace Corps after which he joined the Corcoran School of Art in the position of Assistant Professor.
