This multicolored abstract print in inks is composed of a large gray/black circle in the center, which is dissected, by dozens of poles of various sizes and lengths. The poles are composed of many colors (blue, red, blue, red or green, orange, blue, green, orange, blue, for example) in a sequence. The work is elegant and dynamic.

Louis Catusco
A Navy veteran from World War II, Louis Catusco used his GI Bill benefits to study art at the Brooklyn Museum Art School in the 1940's. Of all the mystics, poets, eccentrics and visionaries among the Taos Moderns, Louis is the most enigmatic. In 1950 he came to Taos to work with Louis Ribak at the Taos Valley Art School, settling here permanently in 1963. After winning many awards, both local and state, Louis dropped out of the Taos art scene to continue his work in solitude.
