Literature & references:

Charles Nodrum, Paul Partos, Charles Nodrum Gallery, exhibition catalogue, 2010:
“His paintings in the early 60s were juicily rich in image and texture: all action.  His contribution to The Field was a complete reverse: a square work comprised of eight smaller squares surrounding an empty centre… The mid to late 1970s saw a reversal of this whole process - again. Onto a delicately inflected surface there entered this small square or rectangle of opulently textured paint. The action had returned to the centre. The process continued with the central section tending to grow larger and more dominant over the years; but in the vast majority of them, the border remained deliberately quiet and understated.  The three canvas paintings in this exhibition are special in a different way again: most unusually, the border has been rendered with a texture nearly as active as the centre.  The result is a degree of competitive tension between centre and surround – a sort of visual throb.”
