James Castle: Show and Store

Text by Lynne Cooke, Briony Fer, Zoe Leonard, Suzanne Hudson.

Featured image is James Castle's untitled, undated construction of a vase made from found paper, cardboard, and string, with color applied with wads of paper, reproduced from <a href="http://www.artbook.com/9781935202707.html">James Castle: Show and Store</a>.For more than six decades, James Castle (1899-1977) dedicated himself virtually full-time to the activity of making art, producing a vast and accomplished body of work, much of which he managed to preserve. Growing up in rural Idaho, Castle devised his own art materials and techniques, making ink for drawing by moistening soot from the family stove with his own saliva and using discarded paper and other materials. In the 1950s, through the efforts of family members, Castle's work came to the attention of the local art community, and it began to be exhibited in Idaho and the Pacific Northwest, often under the rubric of outsider or self-taught art. Not until the late 1990s, however, did it appear in mainstream art circuits. Castle's work poses numerous challenges for the art historian. He was born profoundly deaf and never adopted conventional means of communication and thus never commented on his art. His works are neither titled nor dated, and it is difficult to trace an evolution or establish a chronology. As a result, previous scholarship has tended to focus on Castle's biography or on specific aspects of his oeuvre. James Castle: Show and Storetakes a different approach, looking at the entire scope of the artist's production--which included drawings, constructions made from found pieces of colored card and handmade books--and emphasizing the centrality of his display and storage methods to his practice. The essays in this volume also question the notion of Castle as an artist who worked in isolation from the world at large, examining his copying and reuse of images derived from printed media, including advertising and product packaging, and perhaps even television. Illustrated with more than 200 full-color reproductions, Show and Storeexamines drawings, handmade books, cardboard and paper constructions and collages.
Born profoundly deaf, James Castle (1899-1977) never fully learned to read or write, instead developing his own unique sign system and visual vocabulary. He won some local acclaim during his lifetime (including 1963 and 1976 exhibitions at the Boise Gallery of Art) but only achieved international recognition after his death in 1977.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Brooklyn Rail

John Ganz

I can't remember being as excited by an art book as I was by James Castle: Show and Store. The reproductions are gorgeous, and the work catalogued within-from a show of Castle's work at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Spain-is eminently inspiring and moving…. Buy, borrow, or steal if necessary.

Bookforum

If there were a job application for America's archetypal "outsider artist," James Castle could check almost all the appropiate boxes: Deaf, illiterate, untrained, and undiscovered until he reached his fifties, he lived his entire life (he died in 1977) on a farm in Idaho. As it happens, his art-produced over more than six decades-communes with many of the twentieth centruy's most salient aesthetic trends, even as it seems to have been very much a private means of understanding his home and faimly.

FROM THE BOOK
"James Castle stored his work in bundles and boxes. Wrapped them in cloth and paper, tied them into bundles. Put them into handmade boxes. Stacked up the boxes. The work itself is often a kind of bundle or package. He made books. Booklets. Leaflets. Chapbooks. Albums. Drawings bound into books. Folded into folios. Matchbooks made into book covers." -Zoe Leonard
