PAUL REED-ANOTHER FABULOUS WASHINGTON COLOR SCHOOL ARTIST

Filed under: paul reed — Tags: — jherzlinger @ 11:16 am

I seem to be on a Washington Color School kick at the moment.  Today’s post is another one of these fabulous artists!

Believe it or not, Paris and New York don’t hold the monopoly on influential visual art movements; D.C. is the home of theWashington Color School, a group of painters deeply attuned to the Color Field Movement, who brought their

own twist to the burgeoning genre in the early 1960s. The Color Field painters wanted to rid their art of unnecessary subtext and context, letting their bold abstract works speak to the nature and psychology of the colors they used.

Artists like Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still helped define the movement as it created an entirely new form of abstract expressionism;

Washington Color School painters like Paul Reed  took the bold colors but left behind the expressionism, creating intense works with strong movement that each stood as its own piece, without the emotion.

I love his work and hope you enjoy this post!

Love,

Jamie
