The leading Surrealist who gets lumped in with the Abstract Expressionists, William Baziotes provides a lovely piece here, though it is one that I think more clearly belongs in the realm of Minimalism. It is a single, simple, snake-like ribbon, seemingly floating in space, but without dimension. It is as if it were tossed, photographed, the edges detected, the fields colored. This is very different from his earlier works, and it feels as if it is a transitional work to stuff he never got around to making because he got cancer.
