I got plenty of time and space to look good and hard at a fine selection of paintings when I visited Lizbeth Mitty in her Red Hook studio. Her current fluctuations in subject matter and surface treatments led us to talk about structures as nature abstracted; urban tumult as abstraction in action; and city life as an abstraction, in many ways, of living. The polychromatic potential of compositional tri-groundings also came up, as did differential grids multi-formed into matrices. We also chatted about tugboats and homemade oil sticks. And about injuries and pesca-pictorial tables.

Here are some photos from my visit. To see more of Lizbeth’s work, visit her website.
