About the Item: Artist's statement: "This is a series of paintings I have been working on whose subject is the materials of making art themselves. The title refers to the gifts of color, luster, materiality that combine to create beauty - or at least visual interest, since not all art is intended to be beautiful. These are quite three-dimensional in person and really leap off the wall in a striking way, I think."

(On prior series by the artist): “These paintings are a refreshing departure from the current abstract art world’s seemingly endless parade of fields of color with scribbles providing form, a style that is easily mimicked and has become a sort of “safe,” accessible go-to. There are confident decisions in these paintings appearing as commitments of strongly delineated forms and unexpected collisions of color that give the work a visceral, confident and playful soul, increasingly missing from contemporary expressionist abstraction. They are the paintings of a real painter rather than a decorative artist.”
