»It It takes time to view a painting, and I want to make time part of the experience of my paintings.« David Reed
Häusler Contemporary Zürich is pleased to present «I’m trying to get closer but I’m still a million miles from you», an exhibition of new work by renowned painter David Reed. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with the Zurich gallery.
Since the 1970s, David Reed (*1946, San Diego, US, lives in New York, US) has developed and built upon his particular painterly vocabulary and today remains a leading proponent of abstraction. Working in a labor-intensive, multi-layered process, Reed explores the continued relevance of painting in the contemporary digital landscape. The paintings combine influences from Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Pop Art with his interests in Renaissance and Baroque painting and a passion for film.
The dozen new paintings created specifically for this occasion draw from three bodies of work.
