Lucy Mitchell-Innes discusses the exhibition of works by Jay DeFeo on view at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York through June 7, 2014.

Mitchell-Innes comments that in the works on view in the show DeFeo employs "the photographic process and process of development to produce painterly techniques… to make it feel like a painting. And that was part of the thinking in the whole exhibition was to be able to show how she could move back and forth between one medium and another and still be completely consistent with the imagery and process… that you could look at a work on paper or a painting or a photograph or a xerox and you could see the consistent vision of what she was trying to accomplish."
