David Reed, Vampires and Bonn

David Reed's show Heart of Glass at the Kunstmuseum in Bonn was the occasion of his 500 words for ArtForum

a vampire doesn’t see himself reflected in a mirror, and perhaps that’s also what it is to look at an abstract painting. What do you see reflected? Not yourself, but something else, something strange. It’s like swimming or any other experience when you lose the contours of your body, and you don’t know where you are.

#323, 1990-1993, Oil and Alkyd  112 x 46 in.
