In a New York exhibition entitled “Ten Paintings, 1983–1985”
in November and December of 2013, Willem de Kooning’s paintings
created in the last decade of his long career gave evidence of a
transformed style. That style, his “late style”, with free flowing
mobile lines set against toned whites was stripped-down and crisply
graphic. The narrow bands of thin vivid colors caused the surfaces
of his large canvases to buckle and turn in space. They had the
exuberance of his earlier works combined with a minimalist
sophistication.
So, this video has ten of my paintings. The ten paintings have
free flowing mobile thin lines with vivid colors. While the are
minimalist, they are much more detailed that de Kooning’s.
The opening of this video presents five of my paintings in the
980 Madison Avenue New York gallery exhibition space. The
actual view of the gallery with five of de Kooning’s paintings is at
