James Panero visits the studio of painter Thornton Willis.
Panero writes that Willis' "abstractions are a blend of geometry and intuition. For his latest series, he pares down his forms and used strong color contrasts to energize the tension between figure and ground… Thornton is one of Soho's artist pioneers. He and his family moved into the loft where he lives and works in the 1970s. Over the past decade, his work has attracted a new range of interest. "
An exhibition of new work by Thornton Willis will be on view at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, New York from March 14 – April 13, 2013.
