David Reed at Peter Blum

David Reed's new work was made with stencils from scans of brush marks or his old paintings. The scans are used to layer and multiply the gestural mark on this sparse series of canvases. David Carrier refers to the show in his Brooklyn Rail review as an "assemblage of fragments" which is consistent with Reed's interest in the deconstruction of abstract painting. I'm a fan of the drawings, not as a guide to the painting, but as a window into Reed's thinking and making (see the last image).
