Cruising the city outside the mainstream gallery & museum driven art machine, I found those "accidental" abstract paintings. To me, they are highbrow, unpretentious, unintended paintings, just cross outs or tags painted over. This stuff reminded me of some color field painters or Serge Poliakoff's work and some of Hans Hoffmann's paintings.

Fung Lin Hall mentioned James Brooks to me and shortly after she provided me with the following links.
