Guy Maccoy

Palos Verdes Community Arts Association Rental Gallery

“Father of serigraphy,” Maccoy has unfortunate­ly reduced this art medium to a decor­ative formula of loose, descriptive lines over free color blotches. Unimaginative seascapes are the usual result. The ac­rylic paintings are considerably better, however. Despite stylistic inconsisten­cies, they manifest a greater freedom and spontaneity of approach. The in­nate iridescence of the pigment is used to advantage to produce active, open-formed abstractions of consider­able vitality, and even occasionally the suggestion of a unique iconography.
