Paul Reed - Natural Mystic

Mark Dagley visits 92 year old Washington Color School painter Paul Reed.

Dagley writes: "Reed is the last surviving participant of the Washington Color Painters exhibition, a pivotal event in the annals of the Washington, D.C. art scene... Of all the Washington Color Painters, Reed employed the most non-programmatic approach to painting. His work is enigmatically structured and unabashedly chromatic... He was, and still is, the only original member of the Color Painters to continually use Nature itself as a referent in his work."
