Les Biller

                            Les Biller  Manchurian  1999  oil on canvas  120" x 75"

Les Biller's paintings have every thing I want in a painting. They are accomplished yet obscure narratives that verge on the abstract. He is originally from Hawaii which may account for his vivid pallet and cross cultural vignettes. He attended UCLA in the 60's where he probably worked with and was familiar with Joyce Treiman, Richard Diebenkorn and others. His painting just rings with an authenticity that captures my attention and eventually my heart.
