interviewed by Stephen Ellis, essay by Charles Hagen
David Reed is interviewed by friend and fellow painter Stephen Ellis. In their conversation, they discuss Reed's experiences in art school, his love for Baroque painting, the influence of CinemaScope in his compositions, and his desire to inject painting with contemporary ideas and ways of looking while retaining its rich connections with the past.
Reed: “I’m very interested in the sense that one event in painting leads to another in a process that happens in time, as it does in film. I want to put time back into abstract painting so that you have to go through a decoding process in order to understand what the painting is about.”
