Description: Whether making painterly abstracts or carving linocut prints, New York artist Richard Mock (1944-2006) employed a tight rhythmic structure. In this abstract entitled "Gowanus Rain Day", this compositional framework allowed Mock to apply paint with great freedom creating heavily textured surfaces without sacrificing a sense of order. Richard Mock's command of color relationships sends lesser artists back to their color theory notes. View large overall image and paint detail for a better view of Mock's use of color .|
