Le Mépris (from Godard’s film Le Mépris) is a series of hazy, gentle paintings of, among other things, floats from a parade and reflections on water. They are beautifully painted, and in some works areas of the canvas are untouched giving them an airy dream-like feel. They are reminiscent of 1960’s blurry Richters, but without the depth of feeling or the emotional impact of his images. I wanted to like these paintings but left unable to connect with anything other than the delicate touch of the artist’s hand.
