Talking of Squares

painting of six squaresApart from tea, not drinking it that is, painting squares gives me headaches. Or again more correctly it's not painting squares that does.

You might have the most beautiful eyes in the world - in fact truth be told, you do - but forgive me, I like to paint squares. So I'm going to ignore your lovely eyes (because I can remember them) and look over your shoulder at the window, at the door, at the bookcase, at the filing cabinet, at anywhere where straight lines meet at right angles. Wear a dress with squares some time though, and then watch what happens to my  eyes.

That's why the Abstract section has a subsection at the bottom called Squares - but in truth the squares are in most of the paintings in that entire section - like the 72nd St Paintings. And they're in the other sections. Figures? Have a look at Wedding Dance - in fact did you see what the ads on that page say?

Even more obvious (we're talking squares again) is the figurative Five Circles. Landscapes? Try Caherdaniel Fort or another of that Kerry series. Cityscapes? 7 Buildings, 4 Stories. Animals? Cave Canam I or II. The MidWest? New? Yep - they're everywhere.

In fact many paintings of 'no squares' actually do have squares; only they're long painted over with trees, cliffs, grain bins, stone walls, and your eyes.
