Reviewing Gear's work of the period, art critic and painter
Patrick Heron noted "the flat, clear, strong colours of the black
triangular patches, drawn in straight black lines of even
thickness, with which [William] Gear composes, are painted
swiftly and with assurance; at the surface these canvases are
boldly composed."
