As far as the work of the Abstract Expressionist goes, I am well aware of their time table and importance as I have taken enough modern art history classes to have majored in that subject instead of sculpture.

Brett blossomed into abstraction as a 13 year old in Mexico and kept that eye for the next six decades. Any similarity to Kline, Motherwell or anyone else is a coincidence. Brett was not only a photographer, he was also a magnificent sculptor. And the vast majority of his sculptures are three dimensional presentations of his abstract photography. It all goes together because that is how Brett saw the world.
