Red Grooms: The Graphic Work

Walter Knestrick, Author, Vincent Katz, Author, Vincent Katz, Essay by ABRAMS $75 (320p) ISBN 978-0-8109-6733-5
The colorful, impossibly busy New York cityscapes cramming shops, people, cars, lights, signs and other urban detritus at impossible angles to one another are the signature pieces in Red Grooms: The Graphic Work. Covering the more than 40 years between 1956-1999, editor and Grooms collector Walter Knestrick put together this catalogue of 241 illustrations (171 in color) for a travelling exhibition that will hit New York's National Academy Museum & School of Fine Arts, the Chicago Cultural Center and the University of Miami's Lowe Art Museum, among other venues. As an essay by poet Vincent Katz puts it, in Grooms's work, ""vastly different scales and worlds overlap with a gyrating intensity that prevents the eye or mind from stopping until it has left the image.""
