Round and Oval, Abstract and Otherwise
Here's my write-up of 7 abstract painting shows in LA that was intended for the award-winning List Issue of the LA Weekly, which failed to materialize this year, but what the heck. This off-register marker mandala is ICON II (2006) by Vancouver artist Nicholas Pittman.
If you go here you can get a free 6-issue subscription to the digital version of ArtReview, whose January issue includes an essay I wrote about Ivan Morley's sometimes abstract sometimes otherwise work -- originally for a catalog essay, but then it found a new home in England. The work above is Tehachepi (sic) from 2003.
