Ezra Pound

...Working with a restricted palette, the primaries plus black and white, the adept use of his material, oil bars in his smaller works, makes for an assured balance of concept and craft. He deploys rich saturated colors against which his use of black as a color, as a component of outline, as a means of establishing form, both directly and obliquely and as shadow. This use of black also functions as an amateur lending his images solidity. They have about them an improvisational immediacy but they are definitely not sketches. Occasional lightly applied lines, mere markers ? remnants of the blocking in stage ? remain visible; unaltered they sustain his heads. There are gaps in the paint film showing through to the primed canvas. They carry a certain frission, an undercurrent of expressive potential; these are charged intervals, essential elements in his paintings, each one realized in a dynamic interplay of depiction and abstraction...
