Catalogue Note

“Recent work is marked by multiple view of points, oblique space, shifting perspectives, optical projection into the viewer’s space, elimination of all color but black and white, and the absence of clearly defined surface plane. It is of such visual complexity that it is impossible to retain an eidetic image of a single painting.”

Marcia Tucker, Exh. Cat., New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, Al Held, October - December 1974, p.6
