Laurie Reid: New Work

September 6 - October 20, 2001

Quietly powerful and elegant paintings are meditations on beauty and abstraction, metaphor and process. Reid has a unique approach to making watercolors. Unlike traditional watercolorists, Reid embraces the sculptural effects created by the buckling and puckering of barely pigmented water on white sheets of paper. The results invite the viewer to be slowly swept up and taken by the lines and curves on the paper.
