I like squares!

Squares, squares and more squares...grid patterns of color and images...tight composition with several re-references and a balance between the long rectilinear image on the right and the square of child like drawings and notes on the left...areas of related color on the left with blue, red, white and yellow tie the two sides together...

This painting by Tad Lauritzen Wright looks at the contrast of random patterns of abstraction against representational imagery...I like the edges created by one drawing next to another, one color next to another and a series of lines next to an open space...these implied areas are set up in the grid…simple and childlike.
