Light boxes and fixtures - Purple/green/yellow
Reed’s home studio of sixty years was surrounded by trees. In 2010, while taking care of his wife Esther, Reed began painting the trees. This last series of paintings was the culmination of his creative journey as an illustrator, graphic
artist, color ﬁeld painter plus his post war abstract works.
The Lorton Work House Arts Center held a solo exhibit “Ultraviolet to Infrared in 2011.” The Tree Paintings, acrylic on cotton muslin, were displayed in their tall windows giving a cathedral like eﬀect to the hall.
Nathan Roberts, Reed’s grandson, has placed these paintings in light boxes to give the same stained glass eﬀect. They work well as light ﬁxtures or as a window in a windowless room. They are very much a
twenty-ﬁrst century expression.
These works are signed and dated by the artist. These works may use battery
operated or plug in LED lighting. All sizes include frame and box.
