“One group of these paintings is better than the others. Each of the paintings shows a single black image on (or within) a brown field; there is a chevron, a triangle, a Star of David. The Star, within the context of the set, is read less as a religious symbol and more as a heraldic device, recalling at the same time the use of the Star of David by the Jewish Kahazar Turks as a battle flag, and the irreverant mystical religiousity of Ad Reinhardt. The paintings are like shields hung in a hall after a campaign has ended. Their brown-ness gives the appearance of age, of the antique. This is a soiled, impure modernism, the modern as artifact.”
Robin Peck, Twilight, c Magazine, (September 1988), p. 77
