In Clean Title\, No Accidents\, Reihsen pushes t he boundaries of surface\, color\, and flexibility of paint. Reihsen employ s a performative method he describes as "capturing and intensifying the ear lier version."  The paintings are executed using pneumatic devices and comm ercial painting tools. As the paint dries\, the texture flattens and we are left with an impression of the original composition\; a variation of frott age. The result is an acidic rainbow of pigments\, creating optical illusio ns\, where shapes leap forward and lines vibrate.

The paintings effectively embody a play between the hand\, machine\, and perception. The skilled application of paint feels as if they are made of another medium -- a Xerox print\, photograph\, or emulsion on film\, lea ving the viewer to wonder "how the f were these made?" The tension between the indistinguishable optical and organic forms triggers a hallucinatory af terimage that burns in the brain long after viewing.
