Breakup, 2003-04 - better in reality, maybe you can see some of the good stuff if you click the picture to make it bigger. Here's a much smaller helicopter+spinning color-wheel+octopus painting from 2000.

The many helicopter paintings and drawings are full of short choppy strokes, spaces, and breaks... like the choppy thwack sound of helicopters. The lines and ridges shared the same pulsing blade whop. It was a synaesthetic experience like what I get with some of Charles Burchfield's paintings and the pulsing hum of ciccadas.

Helicopter sounds (third one down is good), blade whops. Some intense sounds, I want to make music. Here I am playing the Netflix strip.

Red and Green Abstraction, 1997-98 - pre-helicopter and octopi? maybe he didn't even start those until he was forty? here's another (relatively) early abstraction, i didn't get the date or title.
Fester, 1999 - earliest of the helicopters and octopi in the show...
Untitled, 2000
Cryptopsy, 2000-01 - sort of a bio-Lasker... like J. Lasker and T. Winters got caught in the same transporter.
Octotech, 2007

Ceilings are fantastic... place feels like Iran or something, even the outside.
