Paul Allen Reed utilized geometric forms and “stripes, grids or curvilinear shapes filled with luminous, transparent colors.” Reed’s boldly radiant, diluted acrylic hues were applied and stained directly onto his raw canvases, thereby creating vivid color fields. Examining color relationships, he painted circles surrounded by hard-edged formal compositions and zigzags. “I have a saying. [Jackson] Pollock dripped, [Helen] Frankenthaler poured, Morris Louis poured. Howard Mehring sprinkled. I blot,” said Reed.
