Lester Monzon @ Kinkead Contemporary: Openings Part 5

Lester Monzon

Under the guise of pursuing abstract painting, Lester Monzon is actually a representational painter. What he represents are images of abstraction...

His new work presents the viewer with a double layer: the background is hard-edged, reminiscent of the work of Brigit Riley or in some cases an overt tip of the hat to Gerhard Richter, although the patterns are now beginning to break apart becoming less regimented or predictable. Floating slightly over this ground so as not to produce too great a depth, are his rendered brushstrokes...
