Graphic Primitives is a theme and variations in which one recognizes algorithmic filtration in the bent flurry of the layers of lines; Background planes of negative space appear derived from positive forms that were reversed and thereby removed. In addition, a quick look around the room suggests that color palettes were determined beforehand: this one will be red, this one blue, this one orange and so on. One senses the presence of the digital, yet the surface of each picture celebrates the expressive possibilities of painting AS painting: touch, attention, calligraphic gesture, textural complexity and transparency.
