My Blue, Mauve and Purple Period

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)
