Reed Anderson lives and works in Great Barrington, MA.
His practice draws from a background of printmaking, popular culture and painting. The heart of his current body of work uses large pieces of intricately cut paper as a stencil, which is folded and painted upon itself multiple times to create an image. Paper that has been cut out of these drawings are further embellished and collaged into the larger drawing, while smaller artworks arise from detritus printed elsewhere while working. This growing organic mass, with interconnections and offsprings, is both a map of how he works and the product of the work itself.
