Astounding!
Absolutly incredible!
But I suppose Tye is being held back by his early representational training. Grant on the other hand seems totally in touch with his inner child and is the absoluite master of this genre.

It can be hard to overcome the strict training of a classical art education, but it builds a solid foundation for abstraction if you are able to make the leap.

Did Cy have a young child? Is it possible that he is an imposter, that his actual child was the one to bring him notoriety?
