Collier Schorr on Peter Cain

Matthew Marks’ new Peter Cain monograph feels like the right book at the right time. More than 130 luscious reproductions of the revered late cult artist’s work are featured alongside essays by Beau Rutland, Richard Meyer and Collier Schorr. She writes, “Muscle cars are American sculpture and painting and photography. I know I was startled and excited when I first saw Peter’s work because it worshipped the only religion our family had, the steel garish show-off monsters my father would drive home every week. And suddenly what was half pride (how cool is that Indianapolis pace car parked in our driveway), half fear (why is everyone else driving a normal car that doesn’t scream), was suddenly a masterpiece. A thing moved inside and hoisted up and gentled and softened and quiet. In the same way one experienced one’s body when standing next to a Robert Morris or a Richard Serra, I experienced my memory of form for the first time when seeing a car that was not a car.”
