This catalog was published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco, California February 12 to March 8, 2003. Dean Byington is a California artist that transitioned from photography to photo silkscreens for large scale oil paintings. From the Essay: "...[T]hese paintings strike me as both visionary and emotionally attuned to the sense of impending disaster that marks our historical moment...they also suggest that devastation is an inherent part of our history, that we have already entered a world that has been devastated, and that we inevitably end up waiting for a catclysmic moment to arrive. What stops these paintings from being shrill cries of doom, because they are far from being that, is their opaque and tangled beauty." Acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
