David Reed’s expressionistic paintings inspired by the 1980s TV series Miami Vice
This volume documents New York–based painter David Reed’s (born 1946) 2016 series Vice, a series of four paintings named after the ’80s American TV series. The book’s elongated width reflects the influence of film aesthetic in Reed’s highly gestural paintings, drawings and color studies.
Published by Verlag Fur Moderne Kunst Nurnberg. Essays by Konrad Bitterli, Stephan Berg and Katy Siegel.
Even more seductive than the title of this book are Reed's 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 Reed's preoccupation with the film mediun into book form.
