Yellow doesn't recede as much, right side doesn't suit, green is akward. Perspective is lost.

Re: gate-calif

abstract beauty
I really really like this one
(just printed it out if that's ok)
subtle shine-troughs do the work imo

painting is another language

Re: gate-calif

Genius of abstract push and pull... the gate a miracle of colour and structural sensibility. Whole piece rotates on nexus of one little splash of aquamarine. Marvelous!

Re: gate-calif

this one works well for me. the paint is vigorous and lots of areas create an intersting space.

Depends on the imagination - not for me, no.
That yellow spill is like a river running through it.

Re: gate-calif

Is this one my favourite? These were like one of those cluster bombs (some of the bombs don't explode immediately, they just lie there waiting). Horrible metaphor for a beautiful thing. We are privileged to see this work, I think.
