Rackstraw Downes : In Relation to the Whole

Lately I have been reading Rackstraw Downes’s essays entitled In Relation To The Whole : Three Essays From Three Decades 1973, 1981, 1996. The essay what the sixties meant to me was very compelling. The essays have given me a much greater appreciation for Rackstraw Downes as a painter and philosopher. I have been enjoying it so much that I stopped by PAFA’s library and picked up his other book Under the Gowanus and Razor-Wire Journal : The making of Two Paintings. Should be a fun insight into a painter’s day to day experience in the field.
