A painter of geometric abstraction, Alan Reynolds did landscape painting early in his career and then changed to total abstraction.  Reynolds was born in Newmarket, Suffolk, England and later established a studio in Kent.

His exposure to modern art came after World War II, when he was stationed as a member of the British armed forces in Hanover, Germany, and, visiting numerous museums, he became aware of German Expressionist and Constructivist art movements.  He returned to England and enrolled in the Woolwich Polytechnic School of Art, where he specialized in landscape painting and "quickly rose to fame and was described by Bryan Robertson as 'the golden boy of post neo-romanticism in England.' " (Absolute Arts)  Subsequently he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art.  He also earned a reputation as a distinguished art teacher with employment at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and at St. Martins.

Increasingly he became more interested in structure and design behind landscape rather than realistic depiction of the subject matter.  By the early 1970s, he was painting modular constructions, many of them pure white.

In 2003, a solo exhibition of his work was held at the Kettle's Yard Gallery at the University of Cambridge to mark the 50th anniversary of Reynolds leaving the Royal College of Art.  The exhibition, "Alan Reynolds: 50 Years After the Royal College of Art", was composed of paintings, drawings and reliefs and told the story of his 'journey' from popular landscape painter of the 1950s through stages of abstraction to "white reliefs of the last thirty years." (Absolute Arts)
