On close inspection, these portraits might seem nothing more than random blobs and globs. But moving away just a little bit, one realizes the concept and its skillful execution: these masterful portraits are somewhere in between painting and sculpture, and the requirement for distant viewing makes the artist's execution seem all the more miraculous. Jim Pallas may not himself be a giant of Detroit art, but clearly he has learned much by standing on their shoulders.

That previous sentence suggests a lead line more than one journalist might use in writing about this show (see for example, this Examiner.com article: http://www.examiner.com/article/artist-pays-homage-to-detroit-s-most-influential-artists).
