That made me smile, Zany. I agree his work is often fragmented, depending on the time he painted it. It surely isn't kaleidoscopic though, is it.
I wish I had done a painting that fit the design of the kaleidoscope for this quote. I've taught that kind of total symmetry in classes a few times but I don't have an example that I could easily put my hands on. I don't like painting that way because it feels too confining but I have an artist friend who does nothing but symmetrical paintings.
