Gene Davis, entering the painting through a single color
There's a sweet survey show of paintings by the late Gene Davis at Ameringer McEnery Yohe
"Look at the painting in terms of individual colors. In other words, instead of simply glancing at the work, select a specific color such as yellow or a lime green, and take the time to see how it operates across the painting.
Approached this way, something happens, I can't explain it. But one must enter the painting through a single color.
And then, you can understand what my painting is all about." - Gene Davis
