David Reed: Baroque Noir

Image coming soon.

Barbara A. MacAdam reviews David Reed: New Paintings at Peter Blum Gallery, New York on view through June 25, 2016.

MacAdam writes: "Reed’s work has always been marked by a peculiar lushness manifesting itself in ribbons of variegated color unfolding at a seductive pace. The baroque forms often intertwine in dense configurations against flat solid-tone photo-like backgrounds. Here, though, we have a deconstruction, the parts disassembled and given star turns, and a strong sense of self-consciousness prevails. This is truly art about art, yielding a kind of biography, or the painting’s autobiography, and it includes Reed’s entire painterly history."
