Neo [Beat] Geo

the beat goes on

Leo Krikorian, 81 is distributing a life’s worth of paintings around his N. California town of Mill Valley.

Krikorian doesn’t much discuss why he pursued geometric painting.

“It’s something I could do,” he said.

Something Krikorian couldn’t do is sell many of his paintings.
“People don’t buy geometric paintings,” he said.

I’ve frequently thought about the ridiculousness of a painter’s life- us who continue to haul around large canvases and look with envy at writers who can neatly store everything in crate-able journals or a computer chip.
