Exquisite discovery in 'Jay DeFeo: Photographic Work'

Featured spreads are from Jay DeFeo: Photographic Work, one of the most surprising and enlightening titles on our list this season. New from DelMonico Books and the Jay DeFeo Foundation, this volume presents—largely for the first time—almost 200 photo collages, photograms, photographs and photocopies by the legendary Bay Area artist known for her paintings and sculptural works, including the monumental 1966 masterpiece The Rose. Beautifully produced and featuring writing by Leah Levy, Hilton Als, Judith Delfiner, Corey Keller, Justine Kurland, Dana Miller and Catherine Wagner, this is a book we simply can’t put down. Als writes, “And what would we do without Jay DeFeo, who is only partly alive because she dares us to look at the work and make sense of that sofa covered in netting, or the empty picture frame with the broken wire, or the telephone with the white bulb that burns brightly in the imagination? What can any of these images mean? Are they images of DeFeo’s idea of sculpture, or sculptural elements? What can she mean by those teeth, that shoe? Let us enter her pictures subtly and swiftly together and take from them what we will, freely, as we revel in the eye of DeFeo the beholder. Behold.”
