    ‘...This later period of his career is when he started giving more liberty to action and subjective painting. He returned to techniques such as ‘wiping’ and the controlled accidents that he practiced in the company of Jackson Pollock during those glory days in New York. His brushwork loosened up and be began turning to more figurative representations, testing the limits of abstraction and working with gestural suggestions rather than the meticulous realism he strove for in his early work. Some of these fantasy-laden representation even resemble the works of surrealist’.
