Siebren Versteeg: doorformsbitman, 2013

“The idea that painting’s death is imminent has persisted since the advent of the daguerreotype. But for digital artist Siebren Versteeg, painting is more relevant than ever. For the past few years, the Brooklyn-based artist has been making paintings randomly generated by algorithmic code. He has a singular intent: to understand what a painting, in its essence, really is.”

Iva Gueorguieva: It’s Futurism Without the Hope | Iva Gueorguieva

Iva Gueorguieva, The Owl’s Failure, 2014

“So what should you know of this art? It looks great on the wall; it activates space for sure…it’s not just beautiful, it’s desperate, it’s your livelihood, it’s injustice, it’s the very impossibility of a solution to these moments we inhabit, it’s our participation in a perpetual breakage. It’s the vertigo of the truth, Futurism without the hope. They’re pictures of the world we live in. On exhibit April 18 – May 31, 2014.”

Robyn O’Neil, The Pressure Chorus, 2013. Oil pastel on paper, 25 x 37 inches
Robyn O’Neil, The Pressure Chorus, 2013. Oil pastel on paper, 25 x 37 inches

“First off, it’s worth noting that this show marks a drastic change in O’Neil’s work. These new drawings are smaller and simpler in subject matter and introduce color pastel to her trademark mechanical pencil. Her earlier, large scale works felt vast and immersive, invoking Henry Darger by populating her apocalyptic environments with little men in track suits to battle out the last days. In these new drawings, she has either ticked the clock forward or turned it way back. There are no figures or animals and only a handful of lonely trees. The landscape has reverted to primordial elements: sky, earth, light, water, and fire, all pregnant with strangeness and mystery. They trade in Darger for the clunky, mystic Forrest Bess. What hasn’t changed is that the spaces of her work are still generated between imagination and the simple magic of “pencil” on paper.”

Gueorguieva’s works can be seen as assemblages of chaos and order, personal concerns and global issues. As the artist states, “to some extent we all do it, trying to make all this scattered matter fit.”

Hernan Bas in Residence at The Chinati Foundation

“Hernan Bas, Chinati’s current artist in residence, lives and works in Detroit, MI. He makes paintings as well as photographs, and is currently exploring printmaking. Bas’s paintings portray subjects in rich, dense landscapes. The detailed surfaces of these works are built up through many layers of color and texture, accentuated by lush painterly effects. During his time at the Chinati Foundation, Bas has continued in his fulsome depictions of young, effete men lost in magical places. His subjects find themselves in verdant settings reminiscent of great novels from the romantic era. Each of his recent paintings portrays a different mysterious light phenomenon, hitherto unexplained. By combining these subjects, Bas sends the viewer back to a time when our perceptions were questioned and emotions reigned supreme. There will be an opening reception for the artist at the Locker Plant on Thursday, June 27th from 7:00 until 9:00 PM. The Marfa community will have the chance to see new paintings by Bas.”

“Francesca Consagra, the Blanton’s Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings, and European Paintings, describes the exhibition as a lens through which viewers can see how the Blanton built a collection of nearly 16,000 works of art on paper in just 50 years. “The opportunity to systematically review a collection of almost 16,000 works on paper and to select a group of over 150 for presentation is both challenging and highly rewarding. With Luminous, our goal is to present works of great quality and rarity that reflect the collection’s three major areas of concentration as well as works that point to new directions for the collection. We want to celebrate 50 years of thoughtful and inspired stewardship and connoisseurship.””

Da Monsta – Snap! By E.V. Day

“The Glass House is pleased to announce its first site-specific exhibition: SNAP! by E.V. Day. Conceived for the building known as Da Monsta – designed by Philip Johnson in 1995 as a visitor center and now a gallery – SNAP! interprets the pavilion’s peculiar geometry and atmosphere both inside and out. Day has roped the exterior of Da Monsta with massive climbing webs and populated the interior with an ensemble of recent sculpture that tease out the noir qualities of Johnson’s late work.”

Groove – the debut studio recording by revered multimedia artist Christian Marclay
Groove – the debut studio recording by revered multimedia artist Christian Marclay

“Marclay has long experimented with the sonic possibilities of the turntable: Recycled Records (1980-86) dismantled and reassembled vinyl records in strange new forms, and his Body Mix series (1991-2) produced striking hybrids of record covers. His first recorded endeavour, Groove, was set to wax in New York in 1982. Using a primitive 8-track recorder, Marclay layered multiple copies of the same 7″ over one another. Stickers were placed straight on the groove, causing the needle to skip and repeat. The result is an eerie drone piece with echoes of Industrial, and provides a point of passage between James Tenney’s collage works and Philip Jeck’s turntable mischief. In May, The Vinyl Factory will issued the first ever vinyl edition of Groove. The single has been specially mastered and pressed on the EMI 1400, and will arrive on 180g heavyweight vinyl. The A-side will feature a series of locked grooves, whereas the flip will include a number of bonus loops to be mixed or added to the main track. The pressing is strictly limited to 300 copies, and the first 100 will come hand-signed by Christian Marclay.”

From Mounds to Memory | Trenton Doyle Hancock

...And Then It Came All Back to Me
Hancock’s work “…And Then It Came All Back to Me” in the James Cohan Gallery

“Trenton Doyle Hancock has spent a majority of his career creating works based on a Darger-esque fantastical narrative of his mind–the world of the meat-loving Mounds and their evil counterparts, the Vegans. For his latest show, “ …And Then It All came Back to me” at James Cohan Gallery, the artist has departed from his ten-year narrative focus, and instead decided to delve into the long tradition of creating work based on personal memory.”

“The Shapes Project: Perfect Couples”
| Allan McCollum

Allan McCollum work in Barbara Krakow Gallery Exhibition

“Working over the past few years, McCollum has designed a system to produce unique “shapes.” This system allows him to make enough unique shapes for every person on the planet to have one of their own. It also allows him to keep track of the shapes, so as to insure that no two will ever be alike. While previous parts of the project have been monoprints, embroideries and rubber stamps, this time McCollum has made “perfect couples” of the shapes to exist in large collections that are reminiscent of the color combinations of Sol LeWitt and the relief forms of Jean/Hans Arp, yet somehow balancing between formal abstraction and the anthropomorphizing of pairs into couples.”

Ibrahim Miranda with one of his cartography pieces at the Graphicstudio (2012)

Original article in Spanish
“Ibrahim Miranda is an influential Cuban artist, with his works part of many collections in museums such as the MOMA, Museum of Modern Art in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and Casa de las Americas in Havana , Cuba, among other art galleries.

Recently, Miranda’s work have been displayed in the Graphicstudio; located at the University of South Florida (USF).

“We are a research institute dedicated on the study of art and we invite artists to come and work with us,” she said in a recent interview Noel Smith, who is curator of the Contemporary Art Museum, also located at USF.

Smith is an expert in the art of Latin America and the Caribbean and has traveled to Cuba as a researcher more than twenty times.

The curator said that Miranda had been to Tampa twice and that in his recent visit, which was one week, he was able to complete two of his pieces in the Graphicstudio.”

Christian Marclay: Art’s Man of the Moment | Christian Marclay

Photo taken at a screening of Christian Marclay’s “The Clock” (2010)

“It took Christian Marclay three years, six assistants, ten thousand clips, more than $100,000 and two whirring, over-heated hard-drives to make The Clock, the work which thrust him from peer-respected artist to full-blown public property. He is still recovering from it, he tells me, when I meet him at his gallery, White Cube, who part-funded and wholeheartedly encouraged him in his Herculean endeavour… “

“I’m fairly sure, unless there are scores of movies in which the time is seen to be 11:48 at a given moment, that Marclay was limited by his source material. He also had to resort to a lot of ticking-clock action-picture scenarios, from the high-toned High Noon on down. Heist movies, time-bomb thrillers, hostage melodramas—the number of them is predictably disproportionate. Marclay returns to the more obvious ones over and over, like the Jason Statham picture Bank Job. From minute to minute (literally), there are delightfully seamless segues, surprising echoes, and excerpts in which I saw the films in question with new eyes. I just can’t conceive of watching it for longer than I did [two hours]…”

Diana Al-Hadid: “The Vanishing Point”

Diana Al-Hadid: Suspended After Image, 2012
Diana Al-Hadid: Suspended After Image, 2012

“Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2012, 6pm – 8pm. Exhibition: September 14 – October 20, 2012.
Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present The Vanishing Point, an exhibition of new work by Diana Al-Hadid. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Al-Hadid creates sprawling sculptures of seemingly impossible architecture. Formal allusions span from a Gothic cathedral turned on its spires, to the maze of the Minotaur winding between the keys of an organ, to Brueghel’s Tower of Babel imploding upon itself, to the soaring water clock of 13th Century inventor Al-Jazari, to the theater of the Surrealist muse Gradiva, the preceding evidencing the increasingly present figure in Al-Hadid’s work. Al-Hadid looks back as a means of looking forward. A sense of time resonates in her work, such that her sculptures in some ways seem relics in their apparent dissolution. She conjures memories of vanished cities, the ruins of Babylon, the great Tower of Babel and the splendor of the hanging gardens. Like Gradiva, “the woman who walks through walls,” Al-Hadid’s deft hands move through time and space.”

IS “THE CLOCK” WORTH THE TIME? | Christian Marclay

Christian Marclay’s “The Clock”

“For those who haven’t managed to make it to “The Clock,” it’s back in New York City, through August 1st, as part of the Lincoln Center Festival, and it’s one of those things you have to see. There’s no story in “The Clock,” just a carefully assembled series of film clips featuring clocks and watches, synced to real time (12:12 in life is 12:12 in the film), for twenty-four hours—a cinematic timepiece. The installation seats a limited number of people, so you can expect lines (check the Twitter feed for line updates), but waiting in line for a movie about time—a piece that has no beginning or end, only arbitrary points of entrance and exit—seems fitting. I was ready to be skeptical, having heard so much about the piece’s brilliance—might it not feel like a one-liner, in the end?—but the charms of “The Clock” are real. And there are many of them.”

Clocking Artful Minutes | Christian Marclay

“Minute for minute, last Thursday wasn’t any longer than any other day. But for the collagist Christian Marclay, whose 24-hour time-torquing film “The Clock” was opening that night, it certainly had been denser. “It’s not a longer day, just more pressured: I had to make three speeches. I had to talk to the press. I had to host all my guests. I had to figure out what to wear,” he said. “Two costume changes. I hate being the focus of attention.”

In ‘The Clock,’ You Always Know the Time | Christian Marclay

“…To say that you lose track of time would be absurd, since nearly every shot that does not show a timepiece includes one character asking another for the time. And as the top of a given hour approaches, your awareness becomes more acute: that’s when the bombs go off, the trains depart, the executions take place — all the stuff that has the people on screen anxiously glancing over their shoulders or plucking back the cuffs of their jackets…

Glass Is Pretty but, He Hopes, Troubling, Too | Josiah McElheny

Works of Josiah McElheny that will appear at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Boston include “Island Universe.”

“JOSIAH McELHENY’S studio is strangely unremarkable. A narrow office furnished with a desk, a drawing table and library shelves packed with books, it betrays few signs of art making, just a couple of rows of neatly pinned photocopied images and black pencil drawings on one white wall. It’s not the work space one expects from this Brooklyn artist, known for dazzling glass works like “Endlessly Repeating Twentieth Century Modernism,” a shimmering display of mirror-glass decanters that seem to go on infinitely, and “Island Universe,” a suite of five room-size silvery sculptures that illuminate the Big Bang theory. Where’s the flaming furnace? The globs of molten glass?”

DAMn Magazine features Christian Marclay’s Cyanotypes

“This is the time of trash and amnesia, the age of salvage and sample, throwaway culture and instant archaeology. Striding unfazed across the littered landscape is Christian Marclay, crunching the recent past underfoot and recycling the pieces. American born, Swiss raised, Marclay is an artistic model for our time, the ultimate bricoleur, whose talent lies in knowing what to pick up. He has built mobius strips out of audio cassettes, laid a gallery floor with CDs, reassembled broken records and sampled them as a DJ (one of his previous occupations), and, of course, remixed the entire canon of popular films in his 24-hour pastiche The Clock, a movie with no plot, hundreds of characters, and no scene longer than 20 seconds — yet still able to draw full houses in New York and Venue. The most recent book on his work, Christian Marvlay : Cyanotypes, published by JRP/Ringier Verlag, shows Marclay salvaging the remnants of chemical photography through its earliest, simplest and most overlooked formats, the cyanotype and photogram.”

“Savannah, Ga., known as one of America’s oldest and best-designed cities, finds itself straddling technological innovation and old-world elegance with the thoughtful redesign of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Museum of Art. The fluid space includes a new 65,000-square-foot expansion off of the original 1856 Greek Revival museum building, and the resulting institution exalts both historicity and new technology.This communal experience fosters collaboration among the SCAD community and museum visitors, and the table’s flexibility allows SCAD to update content within the existing program to showcase temporary exhibitions, and we were excited to know that one of our own, Trenton Doyle Hancock, played a part in this project with a limited edition screen printed wallpaper—Flower Bed II: A Prelude to Damnation.”

All Hell Breaks Loose at Lehmann Maupin, as Hernan Bas Gives the Devil His Due | Hernan Bas

From left, “A Devil’s Bridge” (2011-2012) and “The Expulsion (or, The Rebel)” (2011).

“Born in Miami, Bas has made a name for himself with masterfully colored canvases that offer idyll glimpses. His possible paradises are often inhabited by young men prone to contemplation amdist craggy lagoons and swirling abstract skies. Lately, Bas has been increasingly tempted toward abstraction. He points to “One of Us” (2012), in which a mix of acrylic, airbrush, charcoal, and block printing depict a gentleman being beckoned to join a cultish pack. “If there was anything autobiographical about this show, that [figure] would be me, because it’s like ‘Join the Abstract Expressionist group!

Luxury Bindles: Artist Hernan Bas Collaborates With Louis Vuitton to Create Hobo Chic Luggage | Hernan Bas

Hernan Bas’s installation, “A Traveler,” currently on display at Louis Vuitton Aventura

“A bindle — a cloth or blanket tied to a stick and the Depression-era travel accessory of choice for migrant workers — isn’t usually associated with luxury luggage brands. But for Miami-born, Detroit-based artist Hernan Bas, the bag became the subject of his new installation, “A Traveler,” produced in collaboration with Louis Vuitton. The exhibit is on display through November at the brand’s Aventura Mall location in Miami. For the show, Bas – who also has a Lehmann Maupin exhibition opening in New York on March 15 – took fabric and leather covered with the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram and quatrefoil, along with the brand’s signature checkered print, and tied the edges of the material around branches to create a pouch.”

“Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination is an exhibition of works by contemporary artists who invent humanlike, animal, or hybrid creatures to symbolize life’s mysteries, desires, and fears. Finding inspiration in sources ranging from Aesop’s Fables to the products of genetic experimentation, the artists in the exhibition examine interactions between nature and humanity in the context of oral and written lore, psychology, ethics, and visions of the future in both science and science fiction. The exhibition will include approximately 60 contemporary paintings, photographs, sculptures, and video works.”

Trisha Brown | Untitled (Montpelier) | 2002

“Imagine Jackson Pollock’s toe prints in the midst of one of his most epic drippings. Viewing Trisha Brown’s works on paper instantly brought this image to my mind. Such a thought is not intended to suggest that every female artist needs a male precedent to garner relevance, but rather to ask how Brown’s practice might productively raise questions that complicate the received wisdom about the works of Pollock and other such “greats.” The show features Pollock-size vertical sheets of paper that contain black and gray charcoal and pastel markings—the inscriptions of a dance performed on each surface.”

Alyson Shotz will be presented for a second exhibition at the Espace Luis Vuitton Tokyo. While her piece “A Curve in Space and Time” has been installed at Louis Vuitton Kobe Maison since 2010, Shotz’s work is almost entirely new to Japan. When she visited Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo, Alyson Shotz was impressed by the abundant natural light in the exhibition space. The work in progress she went through to create GEOMETRY OF LIGHT was made in response to it, with a desire to offer something intrinsically new to Espace’s visitors. “What would it look like to see light stopped in time”, encapsulates Alyson Shotz starting point.

A Biennial Blooms Where It’s Planted | Allan McCollum

“Each and Every One of You, 2004,” by the American artist Alan McCollum, showing at the alternative arts space la Salle de Bains in Lyon.

Nestled on the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône rivers, Lyon is chiefly known for gastronomy and silk, but over the past couple of decades it has emerged as a prime destination for contemporary art. The city’s growth as an art draw is largely thanks to its dynamic contemporary art museum — since 1984 it has organized more than 100 exhibitions by artists like James Turrell, Georg Baselitz and John Baldessari — and its contemporary art biennial, founded in 1991. On Thursday, the international art world descended en masse to celebrate the opening of the city’s 11th biennial, titled “Une Terrible Beauté est Née” (A Terrible Beauty Is Born), after W.B Yeats’s 1916 poem “Easter.”Download Full Story PDF

“Zoom Zoom” is a slideshow created from Marclay’s photographs of onomatopoeias found primarily on signs, advertising, and product packaging. During a performance with vocalist Shelley Hirsch, for whom this piece was created, Marclay selects images to trigger her vocal improvisation and presents her with new images in an ongoing call and response improvisation. “Manga Scroll” is a vocal score made using onomatopoeias found in Manga cartoons originally published in Japan but translated for the US market. These black-and-white serialized newsprint comics have been cut and collaged into a 60-foot-long handscroll. Having been stripped of their dramatic context, the sound effects are strung together into one long composition meant for interpretation by voice.

Oppenheimer’s Eye | Iva Gueorguieva | 2011

Electric Works presents Iva Gueorguieva and Julie Weitz: Vertical Hold. From September 9 through October 15, 2011. This two-person exhibition is the culmination of an unfolding visual dialogue between artists Iva Gueorguieva and Julie Weitz, as each considers the relationship between time, body and painting. In this exchange of influence, Gueorguieva takes on Weitz’s reoccurring theme of the mask and existentially rich nature of the reflection, and Weitz adapts Gueorguieva’s implied figuration and propensity for vertical structure. The two artists encounter each other in their insistence on the body as both subject and field, and their consideration of time in the experience of looking.”

After learning that the Museum of Fine Arts will first show his much-buzzed about 24-hour film, “The Clock,” next month at a $200-per-person party celebrating its new contemporary art wing, the film’s creator released a terse statement: “It has always been my express wish,” Christian Marclay wrote to the Globe, “that there should be no additional charge to view my work ‘The Clock’ over and above any general admission price to an institution or any other venue, nor should it be used in connection with the promotion, advertisement, or sponsorship of any person or business. This is contractually agreed by all institutions who own and exhibit ‘The Clock.’ It is my intention that my work be made equally accessible to all.”

Christian Marclay: One of Today’s 10 Most Important Artists | Christian Marclay

One of Today’s Most Important Artists | Christian Marclay

Marclay’s range is impressive. He’s a legend in the DJ world, where he’s credited as one of the inventors of “turntablism,” the art of using spinning records as noise-and-rhythm machines. And he is the artist who, more than anyone, brought sound into the hallowed halls of fine art. Download Full Story PDF

The Tree Thinks of Tumbling | Iva Gueorguieva | 2011

Iva Gueorguieva’s recent paintings at Ameringer/McEnery/Yohe (“A Stitch in Graft”)—one of two concurrent shows for the Bulgarian-born artist—produce similar spellbinding effects. To stand before The Tree Thinks of Tumbling or Raft (or anything else here) is to experience a dizzying sense of free fall, a dreamlike plunge into information overload, as if you were traveling through Google itself. Fluttering ribbons, organic shapes, streaks, strokes, solid and washed-out colors, and fragments of unidentifiable things swirl in giant maelstroms. Impressions of the world rush past, but you recognize almost nothing. As in chaos theory, larger principles—a clockwise spiral or a beautifully focused palette—establish a vague organization, but the movement is endlessly disorienting.

Colorful Murals Accent School of Music | Janaina Tschäpe

Janaina Tschäpe consulting with Master Printer Tim Baker on one of her works being prepared for sale at USF Graphicstudio

Florida’s luxuriant greenness, heat and humidity influenced Janaina Tschäpe’s design for the two striking murals that will greet all who enter the University of South Florida’s remarkable new state-of-the-art School of Music building’s concert and conference facilities on Holly Drive. As the towering wall paintings – named Forest Spirits – evolved into their final forms, various elements were derived from memories or were inspired in the moment. Whether it was the music she played – from punk to classical and everything in between – or the sunlight, or thoughts of Brazil and Florida, Tschäpe incorporated it all into a project she labored on from eight to nine hours a day for four weeks – loving every moment.See Janaina Tschäpe work produced at GS>>

La Explosión de Los Carpinteros en Arco | Los Carpinteros

Downtown | Los Carpinteros

Hay maneras de domesticar las amenazas. Los miedos. Por ejemplo, convirtiendo una granada de mano en un elegante bargueño lleno de perfectos cajoncitos o los perfiles de amenazadores edificios oficiales de una dictadura en mobiliario de diseño. También es posible expresar en el mundo real deseos como el de una cama que se prolonga en montaña rusa o el de misteriosas piscinas-laberinto. Y también están las caravanas de ladrillo y los carritos de la compra con forma de contenedor de basura o los instrumentos musicales latinos derretidos, convertidos en “salsa”.

Rembrandt and Modernists at a Weekend Red-Tag Sale | Alex Katz
The annual fair sponsored by the International Fine Print Dealers Association can sometimes seem like a high-class jumble sale. Dealers tend to cram their booths full of art, hanging Rembrandt etchings next to Rauschenberg silk-screens and piling excess inventory into forbidding stacks. If you are accustomed to the minimalist pretenses of most contemporary art fairs, however, the print dealers’ showcase may come as a relief. Download Full Story PDF

Mix It Up: Spring Arts | Trisha Brown
We interact with art at some level every time we look at it, usually trying to figure it out rather than feeling it on an emotional level. Sometimes, though, a work is so fully conceived, with a perfect balance between an idea and the materials used to realize the idea, that it evokes a powerful response that is both intellectual and spiritual.

Cuba: The Art Revolution | Challenging Fidel’s Socialist System | Los Carpinteros

Marco Antonio Castillo Valdes and Dagoberto Rodriguez Sanchez of Los Carpinteros

Cuba has a long and rich heritage in the arts, but during the last two decades, the visual arts have become a cultural phenomenon. In a nation that prides itself on its government-sponsored public art education and thriving cultural centers, Del Toro discovered that art is at the center of Cuban society. “In the absence of a free press, the arts have become a space through which people can observe and debate the social issues of the day,” says Del Toro. The fact that Cuba has been notably off limits to Americans for so long has only fueled the success of Cuba’s art market. “Cuban art has been in such high demand because it’s so hard to get,” says Del Toro. “People from abroad want to buy this art because it’s politically charged and exotic.”See Los Carpinteros work produced at GS>>

American curators have selected acclaimed and well-established painter and printmaker Ed Ruscha to represent the United States at the Biennale. Known for his almost stereotypical depiction of American subjects and his use of language, Ed Ruscha’s work asks questions about the aspects of urbanity that society takes for granted.

Hands On/Hands Off | Los Carpinteros
This outdoor installation is a light appetizer to be savored before continuing on to the weighty main course of Los Carpinteros: Inventing the World at the University of South Florida’s Contemporary Art Museum. Co-curated by director Margaret Miller and curator of education Noel Smith, the exhibition shows the work of the young Cuban collaborative Los Carpinteros…The most perfectly constructed piece in the show is “Breadbox,” made of maple wood. In Los Carpinteros’ spirit of equality and respect for craftsmen, I credit the cabinetmaker: Bob Ballard, who built this flawless piece at his Tampa workshop Environ Studios. It’s a loaf of bread/it’s a missile. It’s collaboration. Download Full Story PDF

Tokyo Builds A Microcosm Of Itself | Louise Bourgeois
For style-obsessed Tokyo, always striving to be 10 degrees ahead of New York and London, this 29-acre, $4 billion complex of curving glass, minimalist metal and earthy stone arrives after a decade in gestation, offering an enticing conglomeration: cutting-edge restaurants, shopping, a hotel, movie theaters and art, as well as a 54-story office tower and a residential complex.

A Family That Goes On 8 Feet And 8 Paws | William Wegman
THOSE citronella eyes, set in a velvety gray pelt, stare out from every corner of the Wegman studio, a sprawling converted nursery school in Chelsea. It is also the family home of William Wegman, the conceptual artist and dog-theme merchandiser, whose fans respond to his outpouring of videos, PBS programs, books, commercials, posters and kitchen magnets as if answering the siren call of a high-pitched dog whistle. He is just now finishing a memoir (to be published Oct. 1) of life with Fay Ray, one of the Weimaraners who inspired him. Download Full Story PDF
