    The first two remind me of canyons except cool colored. There is a familiar feeling that is disorted through texture, composition, and scale, but is still detectable.

    Ha i saw his red sweater tower at Art Basel Miami last year. Super detailed folding going on there. It was so neat and each corner was perfect, not one thing out of order.
