David Reed: you look good in blue
Konrad Bitterli, Stephan Berg, Kunstverein Hannover
D. A. P./Distributed Art Publishers, 2001 - Art - 88 pages
Even more seductive than the title of this book are Reeds unique pictorial inventions combine the precise color application of Minimalism with the swirling gesturism of Abstract Expressionism and the magical light of Baroque painting to create an adventurous, multilayered, dense and complexely interlocking ornamentation. Viewing his paintings, often executed in extremely elongated formats (hence this unique landscape book size) is like a cinemaScope experience that opens undreamt-of vistas and horizons. This catalogue to accompany the noted exhibitions, co-designed by the artist, and translates Reeds preoccupation with the film mediun into book form.
