Baroque Modernism: New Work by Albert Paley
Peter Joseph Gallery (Illustrator)
Paperback, 60 PAGES
Publisher: Peter Joseph Gallery 1992
This catalog was published for a decorative arts exhibition of Albert Paley’s at the Peter Joseph Gallery. Although the works included were primarily decorative arts, that is functional objects, the exhibition was a milestone in Paley’s career due to his use of wood in conjunction with metal. Paley’s organic style and use of scale to engage the viewer was an essential aspect of the show. The catalog includes several essays commenting on both Albert as a sculptor as well as his work in a contemporary art context. Peter Joseph, J. Richard Gruber and Marcia Westby’s articles are presented, followed by a pictorial listing of the pieces in the show, many being two-page spread.
