Are these paintings deceptively simple? No. They are simple.

Artist who paint like this have given themselves permission to be simple - which is in and of itself a radical concept, though I find myself getting bored working in that mode.

But why not chillax - it will come out in the work, and chill sells more than angst.

I thought Heilmann was the matriarch of chillaxn.
but i have to admit it is not free of angst. maybe thats why i like it.

I think they are carefully and dutifully "modern"-in a fairly relaxed,yes,way.They seem a bit good student-y-not especially driven.
