The Link article was written intitialy in the late 80′s. This set of photos on Flickr represents work Link was writting about. I realize jpegs on a computer screen are a poor substitute for seeing, so if you are ever in the neighborhood call and stop by the studio for a look see. The studio is northern NY near Syracuse. Thanks for the review and the mention. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dhughto/sets/72157622678492109/

The late 60′s work is by all means pasted. Its surface is felt and other sheet goods and or paint on differing planes. Each color is on a different level from the others. Yes, he was bold to use dayglo and not worry about longevity, let the buyer beware, but he’s far more than Halley. Your venom seems to come from something more than just the photos or mention of this “unmentionable”. What’s your beef?
I personally have come a ways since first seeing these Stellas displayed at Larry Ruben Gallery in New York in the late sixties. At the time I liked the paintings but thought he had copped out by using less than permanent materials. You can’t stand the test of time if you don’t last in time I felt. Now I feel his oeuvre is big enough that if some series are ephemeral, there will still be plenty of the conventional to substantiate his place in late 20th early 21st century visual art thought and expression.
I’m guessing I wouldn’t recognize your definition of abstract painting. By the context of your use, it would seem to you anything ‘other than’ is just doomed to banality.

But that big thing in the first photograph by the artist we no longer mention doesn’t look very pasted or painterly. And only a very short step indeed to the utterly despicable Peter Halley. Who, by the way, is by no definition that I can comprehend an abstract painter.
