Stained and Unstretched
February 14 - March 23, 2013

Paul Reed

The newest work by Paul Reed, the Washington D.C.-based artist and founding member of the Washington Color School, goes back to his roots of stain painting in the 1960s. The work consists of bright acrylic paint on fast-drying muslin, unstretched and designed to be hung in windows backlit with sunlight like a stained glass window. Reed’s work changes about every decade, with these stained and unstretched paintings the latest in his six decade-long history of studying color through the interplay between surface and light.
