A selection of new works by the celebrated New York artist (and filmmaker, and designer) Julian Schnabel, surrounded by unusually riveting texts by art world luminaries Bonnie Clearwater, Fudi Ruchs and Georg Baselitz. The paintings, prints and sculptural works gathered here are large and expressionistic, expansive, searching and fearless. They are like the artist, according to this catalogue's foreword, "heroic yet human; innovative yet timeless absent of cynicism masquerading as irony." The central paintings are of a figure named Chuck, a surfer type who helped design and build Schnabel's studio complex in Montauk, Long Island. Angelic, perhaps homoerotic, slightly unfinished, they definitely stake out new terrain for this quintessential, and deserving, New York art star.
