Gregory Lind Gallery is pleased to present, “You Would If You Loved Me,” new works by Reed Anderson.
An outgrowth of meticulous incisions, repetitions, and extractions, Reed Anderson’s work reveals the potential of the cut as both a medium and a craft. For Anderson, the cutting of paper is a dissection of the creative process, a way to shape structure through voids and build form through deconstruction. What emerges is, according to Anderson, a new ‘species of abstraction,’ an intermingling of animal and floral contours that suggests the patterns of nature and systematization of craft. As hybrid forms, Anderson’s works are as much a new species as they are new specimens, examples of a cross between fine art and craft and the grafting of pop onto pattern. (image attached)
