"Richard"
by sabine7 / February 23, 2006


Massachusetts painter John Gibson does not stray from the subject of balls. Gibson's paintings depict spheres that appear to be fancifully coloured balls of a certain weight, perhaps like small bowling balls or large boules. Stripes, polka dots, spirals and arabesques are repeated in different hues, on a variety of grounds, but it is obvious that this is a recurring motif for Gibson. These oils and watercolours, named after people and places, seem quite realistic until one tries to factor in gravity. Obsessive perhaps, but in a most delightful way.
