Publisher's description: Published on the occasion of Jay DeFeo's (1929-1989) first exhibition at Mitchell-Innes & Nash featuring 50 key works spanning the years 1965-1989, this volume examines DeFeo's distinctive exploration of visual vocabulary, rich materiality and experimental process across the media of painting, drawing, photography and rarely-seen photocopy works. The catalogue features two double-page spreads of major paintings: "Lotus Eater" from 1974 and "Tuxedo Junction" from 1965/74, the latter having the distinction of being one of the only remaining works which DeFeo worked on while she worked on "The Rose." The original essay written by Los Angeles-based artist Walead Beshty focuses on the handful of forms and objects that appear and reappear in DeFeo's work, accruing meaning incrementally over time.
