raoul de keyser

Was interested in Raoul De Keyser's show up at David Zwirner until October 24. RDeK is obviously working FROM something. I kept noticing the under-painting...especially the washes of reds and blues located just below the painting's surface. Trees, rocks, mountains, logs, flags, water, and floating space are implied. Small canvases with a kind of warm Hartley minimalism.

I was just looking up the word fragility and it reads: '2. Lacking physical or emotional strength; delicate 3. Lacking substance; tenuous or flimsy...' I think that discribes what i admire about de Keyser's paintings.
