    MIA Artist in Residence: David Reed.

    David Reed (b. 1946) is famous for his sensuous abstract paintings containing swirling brushstrokes. The artist smoothes the surface of his paintings by sanding away layers of paint and glaze, giving each canvas a transparent glow. Reed draws inspiration from a variety of sources, including Abstract Expressionism, Baroque, and Mannerist painting.
