At any rate, to the ordinary gaze, Mr. Thursz’ large paintings have a sort of convention in being painted all over in one color or black, with one or more large roughly circular forms in the same color or slightly darker, executed with heavier paint applied in strokes having a different direction, and at a suitable distances from the circles, one or two bars of different color. This theme in variations is played throughout the show. But to Mr. Freeman, these paintings “tell us a lot abou the world in general” and about the artist and about ourselves.
