My essay “Visual Devotion: The Commentaries of Guy Chase” (pages 27 to 43) is one of five essays that analyze the work of the late Guy Chase, a conceptually oriented painter and collagist. The essay describes Chase’s methods, as he developed a body of work full of humor, questions, personal reflection, and critical art historical commentary.
This catalog accompanied a travelling exhibit of drawings by the late artist Joseph Fiore, who worked and exhibited in NYC and ME. The exhibit will open at the Asheville Art Museum in Asheville NC June 15th, 2012. In the essay, I trace Fiore’s development from his beginnings at the famed Black Mountain College, through his acclaim as a realist painter, to a late body of work that fused abstraction with elements of writing and visual symbols.
