I decided to treat you to a different type of eye candy today. Tucked inside a folding file of mine was a myriad of pamphlets, papers, and tickets from my freshman and sophomore years at MSU. Among these was a booklet of Javier López Barbosa’s work that I picked up at Canyon Road during my sojourn in Ghost Ranch during Spring Break of my sophomore year. I remember being struck by the beauty and intensity of his paintings the way Pollock entranced me the first time I saw him. So, I’m sharing a sampling of Barbosa with you. Enjoy.
