His work draws you in with seeming simplicity. As you get closer, however, you will find detail not apparent at first glance. Perhaps it is the use of color that distracts from the work's linear skeleton? There is something almost architectural in the pieces but also something pastoral. Yes, that sounds a little crazy. His paintings function from different theoretical perspective (at least for me). You can image you are looking at a horizon or down from on high.
