Of the Bay Area abstract Expressionists, Lobdell is just about the most interesting of them. His work sorta straddles the line between early AbEx biomorphism and surrealism. Looking at the works here, they are amazing pieces of semi-figurative abstraction. These pieces are less related to the works of folks like Diebenkorn and more in the vein of Visily Kandinsky, with forms that are representitive in some form, but of which there is no certain representation.
