The following quote is from the Tate Collection: "His works are mostly small in scale and include many drawings in India ink or gouache, and papiers coll-23s, as well as oils. He employs tachiste and calligraphic abstract idioms in a search for images of germination, metamorphosis, etc. expressive of the rhythm of life; has also used insect forms and male-female imagery."
