PAMM presents David Reed: Vice and Reflection – An Old Painting, New Paintings and Animations. Reed has experimented with methods of painterly abstraction for more than five decades, pushing and expanding material limits, forms, and references. Since the 1970s, his works have drawn upon and critiqued the legacies of Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Conceptual art, while continually responding to new forms of image making taken from cinema, television, and digital media.
For the museum he is creating a new series of works inspired by a painting he created in 1984-1985, titled #212(Vice). This painting presents highly saturated blues and yellows that were drawn from similarly strong colors used in the 1980s TV series Miami Vice. Reed has made a “remake” of this earlier painting in the form of 4 new large-scale paintings, which play with the scale and proportions of the architecture of the museum gallery in which they are exhibited.
