  Hard Edge Geometric Series: 1964-'65


                   This series of hard edge geometric paintings, done when the I was 18 years old and still a high school student taking summer, or night courses, at the Vancouver School of Art
                    with teachers like Ron Stonier.
At this stage of my development, I was also doing life drawing, still life and landscapes. These works, however, were influenced by the late
                    European abstract painters such as the Italian artists, Arturo Bonfanti
and Alberto Magnelli, the English abstractionist,Victor Pasmore, the early work of Victor Vasarely and

                    also Jean Arp.
