Altoon Sultan blogs about the exhibition Raoul De Keyser: Drift on view at David Zwirner Gallery, New York through April 23, 2016.

Sultan notes: "For Raoul De Keyser (1930-2012), paint is a subtle medium, carrying a delicate expression, fluid and free, and at the same time concise and spare. His paintings are like brief poems, allusive, and richer than the minimal language suggests." She concludes: "Within his quiet language, De Keyser explored wide worlds."
