|The Painter's Hands 1973|
In the early 1970s, in New Jersey and during a year back in England, I continued to experiment with various divided formats—stripes, grids and other irregular geometric figures—using large canvases, often over 72" in at least one dimension.
I also expanded my vocabulary of forms with particular interest in the tension between juxtaposed stained and impasto passages. For some reason, at that time I seemed to be especially attracted to a range of colors from reds to blues and in between.
This is a selection from that period (these somewhat fuzzy images were taken some years ago when the canvases were still on stretchers)
