louche (lōōsh)
adj. Of questionable taste or morality; decadent.
[French, from Old French losche, squint-eyed, feminine of lois, from Latin luscus, blind in one eye.]
~ American Heritage® Dictionary, Fourth Edition

"Its mix of a structural element from high modernism and almost louche use of cheap and unlikely materials sets the tone for a kind of hippy abstraction."
~ from "Painting when Painting was Dead," by David Cohen
