Forrest Bess at Christie’s

Image coming soon.

Caleb De Jong reviews the an exhibition of paintings by Forrest Bess at Christie's, New York, on view through April 3, 2012.

De Jong writes: "Supporting himself as a fisherman in the Gulf, Bess believed his work's symbols were descended from a Universal principle and could be understood by all… Bess, perhaps, believed his mythology more than most. Like any artist, however, [his] work stands on its own strengths independent of any invented or universal imperative. Formally bold and stylistically direct… Bess' work comes off as fresh and immediate."
