About the TOWER PAINTINGS, 2007

These thirty-four spare abstract paintings, based on the structure of isolated observation towers, are inspired by paintings my reclusive father made in the Sixties. The small size (18" x 24") and pictorial language reference abstract easel paintings from the postwar era. Unlike me, my father worked fairly quickly and didn't agonize over specific colors or shapes. Yet his paintings all easel-sized canvasboards - have a prepossessing brushwork and simple charm.

An artist's book about the paintings is available here.
