Although/personal and intense, they are planned with a dec-/orative logic, usually lacking in works of any expres-/sive power. This highly personal frontier work in the realm of form, unhampered by too finished a tech-/nique, makes an unwitting contribution to the imper-/sonal tradition of the designer or architect, that, is to/me most valuable. Sensitive and far from "primitive,"/these small paintings carry large lessons for the more finished painter./Alvin LUSTIG/AMERICAN CONTEMPORARY GALLERY/6727 1/2 HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD, HOLLYWOOD; in black, upper right corner: SEC. 562, P.L. & R.
