Reed Anderson is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
My practice draws from a background of printmaking, popular culture and painting. The heart of my 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 I work and the product of the work itself.
From 2012-2013 I made a series of paintings under the heading of Papa Object which can be seen in their entirety at www.papaobject.com. It is from this series that some of my new work has developed.
