Gandy Brodie: Wanderer Among the Rubble

Image coming soon.

John Yau re-introduces painter Gandie Brodie (1924–1975) whose work is on view in the exhibition Gandy Brodie: Ten Tenements at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York, through July 1, 2012.

Yau writes: "In contrast to the loaded brush and aggressiveness we associate with [Norman] Bluhm and [Joan] Mitchell, Brodie's work is slow to reveal itself. A self-taught artist, Brodie's method of painting is all his own. His paintings' rough, uneven surfaces compress the gritty exterior walls of the Lower East Side with its multilayered interiors, painted over and over like tenement apartment walls while left unprotected against the ravages of time and the elements."
