BRAD SPENCE COMES 'OF AGE'
Largest series to date, a departure in style from previous work!  Color contrasts bold and severe!  Painterly vocab allowed into work!  Spence speaks through imagination of teenage boy: unsophisticated, exoticized idealization of femininity!

ROBERT KINGSTON CONTINUES INVESTIGATION INTO POSSIBILITIES OF PAINT
Work firmly planted in language of abstraction!  Thrusts of color, sketches conjure aggregate of ancient, scientific, organic and industrial hieroglyphs.  Kingston's paintings a steady, engrossing read that gradually reveal their history and resolve, sources say.
