The Whitworth University Art Department and the university’s Bryan Oliver Gallery are proud to present the work of Todd Reed. Please join us for the opening reception in the Bryan Oliver Gallery from 5-6pm, followed by a lecture by the artist in Lied 102 from 6-7pm. Reed’s abstract paintings challenge the viewer to acknowledge the tactile nature of the work as it exists in space. At the same time, the work deals with the more traditional problems/issues of space that are associated with painting. The paintings are created on precisely shaped aluminum panels that are then sprayed with enamels. The resulting objects are smooth and seem to lack any indication of the artist’s hand.
