Art Brokerage: Robert Reed (b. 1938) uses a vocabulary of abstract imagery. Robert Reed's paintings and paper constructions visually excite with their vibrant colors and energetic play of forms. With paint, electrostatic images of earlier paintings, and collage materials that are pasted, stapled and bolted to the surface. Reed creates complex textures and physical dimensions. The chromatic spread includes red and black from Charlottesville's Jefferson High School and green and gold from Burley Middle School, which earlier was a high school. The orange and blue harken back to his time at Morgan State University, Baltimore, where he received his B.A., while the blue and white represent Yale University where he received his M.F.A. These symbolically unite his growing-up years in Charlottesville with his professional training and achievements as an artist and teacher. Reed currently lives in New Haven, Conn., where he is on the faculty at Yale.
