At once rigid and lyrical, Boothe’s Red Line, Gray Drift depicts evenly spaced, parallel red “snap lines” over an expressive smoky veil that is heavier at the top and dissolves at the bottom of the canvas. The intricately composed work epitomizes the artist’s style as a “rogue Minimalist.” Minimalism applies to his limited color palette, uniform horizontal lines and standardized six-by-six-foot canvas. The rogue artist counters with a poetic gray curtain, providing a variation in mood.
