SarkadiLeo - Chinese Jar.JPG
A striking composition is achieved with very few objects: the painting’s eponymous vase, a few flowers and blooming limbs, a goldfish bowl, and two paintings. Carefully outlined shapes play against a scattering of colors applied thickly—even…

Pandoflini - Paper Bouquet.jpg
