Carol Reed
October 20, 2011 - December 4, 2011

Carol Reed’s abstract works on paper feature bold shapes in charcoal or ink that dance alone or with similar shapes–each one has a unique riff on a shared theme. Hesitation, distortion, reorientation and search are components of her creative practice. Color, pattern and texture are employed in various ways to interpret the basic elements in surprising ways.
