Los Angeles

Serge Diakonoff

Ernest Raboff Gallery

This 29 year old Swiss artist’s crisp, transparent-thin paintings display a sometimes too refined palette and preoccupation with technical perfection. His small oils on paper have that European finish about them which can make pictures appear frigid. There is nevertheless a certain intimate graphic charm about their synthetic-cubist forms and the rather sensitive economic simplicity with which he creates order in a single image.
