"all over" is in

Lehmann Maupin Gallery in new york has a nice summer show "Fresh Paint" on display...along with a fancy website to check out.

I think I have some how fallen for the all over composition.  I used to despise it, thinking that no focal point was annoying and just looked "off". I hated Pollock's all over splatter paint that had no varied point of interest.  Now I am drawn to explosive all over compositions but they still suggest some sort of spatial organization.  They do this by altering color and size to create depth but still no real horizon or plane is developed.  I think I first started liking this effect because of a cy twombly.
