THE SONG CAVE / R.H. Quaytman
11x17 inches archival pigment print
stamped and numbered edition of 70
R.H. Quaytman uses a variety of techniques and artistic vocabularies to explore the complex history of painting. The artist considers each body of work a new “chapter,” each structured around a specific theme or concept, a discursive network of associations developing in the work over time.
The image used in this print originally appeared in a different configuration, as part of Quaytman’s 18th chapter, which reflected on Jack Spicer, a poet associated with the San Francisco Renaissance of the 1950s. “The poem begins to mirror itself,” Spicer wrote in “Ten Poems for Downbeat.”
R.H. Quaytman was born in Boston in 1961. The artist has been the subject of solo exhibitions at many museums and institutions including: Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland,; Neugerber Museum of Art, Purchase, NY; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA; and The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA. Quaytman was included in the Whitney Biennial in 2010 and the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. The artist currently lives and works in New York City.
