''Lemay’s dark abstractions recapitulate this memorable experience. They’re morbid yet hopeful, for a sort of inner light emanates from them. From the distance, we are looking into the opaque darkness of a desert -- into a desolate wasteland, meaningless, empty, abysmal. Coming close to the paintings -- some are 20 feet long, engulfing one in their vastness, inhuman because no human body can take its measure -- we see that, in intimate fact, the paintings are composed of horizontal bands of Hebrew letters, forming blurred words.”
