Altoon Sultan blogs about Nicholas Krushenick: Early Paintings at Garth Greenan Gallery, New York, on view through October 11, 2014.

Sultan writes: "used the elements of cartooning––bold colors, simple shapes, black outlines––to create vivid and inventive abstract paintings. [This] show of his early work... is a visual delight, with each painting exploring very different ideas of color and shape in space. With all their emphasis on flatness, they are not at all flat, but bend and curve and wobble with vigorous energy."
