Cy Twombly’s Camino Real

Image coming soon.

An essay by Ed Schad about Cy Twombly: The Last Paintings at Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills, on view through June 9, 2012.

Schad writes: "Camino Real is a 1948 play by Tennessee Williams… and when it comes to entering into a dialogue with the works at Gagosian, reading the text can be illuminating… On the set, there is a wall and a gate that separates the town from what is simply out there – an unknown wasteland, a place where no one ever comes back from, Terra Incognita… I think about Twombly at the end of a long journey, which has taken him to places in the old world and the texts of our Western culture that I would like to visit. To find him in the end in Camino Real, in that uncertain and horrible territory, dizzy with fever and crime and impossible dreaming, where one can peek over the wall but cannot see it, is chilling."
