Published on the occasion of Jay DeFeo's (1929-89) first exhibition at Mitchell-Innes & Nash featuring 50 key works spanning the years 1965-89, this volume examines DeFeo's distinctive exploration of visual vocabulary, rich materiality and experimental process across the mediums 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 essay 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.
