Lost Geometry

What is the substantial difference between an artist who diagrams and fills in completely, and one who diagrams and only partially fills in? Seems to be a lot, as the work of Martin Barré is more attractive than that of most artists who use geometry. The procedure is unpromising, and doesn’t call on much from the maker, but there’s a magic in leaving out, which is not really the same thing as doing less.
