New painter (to me, anyhow)

I stumbled across Jose Lerma's paintings in a little exhibition catalogue we just got in at the library. He seems like an artist who is still developing, but I find his work more interesting than most of the abstract/decorative stuff so common lately.

This painting is Pronounced Neato, 2005. Check out his website. He reminds me a bit of Cecily Brown, only spare instead of fleshy. Lerma is based in Brooklyn and Puerto Rico and is represented by Andrea Rosen Gallery.
