From the Cocoon: Larry Poons

Piri Halasz reviews Larry Poons—Radical Surface: 1985—1989 at Loretta Howard Gallery (through December 23, 2010) for Artcritical.  Halasz discusses the environment Poons created while making the paintings "The paintings ... were made in an old barn in upstate New York. They started out as an environment, with a long swathe of canvas wrapped around so as to form an enormous cocoon or grotto, within which the artist worked by electric light. "
