Warren Isensee is endlessly resourceful. Within the larger framework of geometric abstraction, with which his work is associated, he is a maverick of many surprises. Even when the formal elements of his work change profoundly, his brilliance of executionwhether we are confronted with a large scale canvas or a very small drawingremains constant.
