Buy the Postcard Instead

Larry Poons You Ain't LivedLarry Poons's new paintings at Danese gallery left me a little disappointed. These large abstract-expressionist paintings are full of dense squiggly lines. Some areas of these acrylics are full of thick globs of paint, while in other parts, the paint is so thin that the canvas fabric is visible. Despite all the various colors and different brushstrokes, these works look very flat and uniformed. Surprisingly, reproductions of these paintings look better than the real thing.
