Seed notes: "In the last year and half of Oliveira's life, there were wonderful developments in the studio. 'The old Nathan came back,' says Joe Oliveira, 'the guy who wanted to be in the studio every day. He couldn't wait to get back in there; something new and beautiful was happening.' Starting with rich, abstract washes of color, Oliveira was again inspired to conjure up haunting, solitary figures."
