These confident oil paintings, with their rounded, textured forms call forth comparisons with Dubuffet, Guston even Picasso. Their comic-like cartoonish style endows the work with a charming simplicity yet it is clear that the artist knows exactly what he is doing. The animal/human forms are softly modulated with tonal gradations that simultaneously give them a monumental feel, as if seen at extremely close range. At times, the forms the thick outlines describe become transparent, serving to further the visual play between solid weight and a comic lightness.
