Christine Frerot reviews the selection of 65 works, analyzes some of the paintings, watercolors and drawings with especial emphasis, and explains the artist’s interest in topics that reflect the rural world and everyday life, as well as the use of a light eroticism in his artistic production.

A text on the show presented at White Columns and the Queens Museum of Art, of the city of NewYork. Written by Richard Leslie, the review embarks upon the story of a group of terrains bought by the artist to be sold afterwards and through the project explores the problems of tangibility and value/property. What happened to these when he died and how they became the focus of the show curated by both institutions in  NY, are some of the topics developed by Leslie. Read the review
