Description
Tracing the stylistic evolution of Philadelphia artist Thomas Chimes' idiosyncratic art, this catalog presents a long-overdue survey of his remarkable five-decade career. In 150 color reproductions and an additional 124 black and white figures, here are canvases combining landscape imagery with symbols like crucifixes (late 1950s to mid 60s); mixed-media constructions built in metal boxes (late 60s to early 70s); his small-scale sepia-toned panel portraits of 19th- and 20th-century writers and artists (mid to late 70s); and his enigmatic "white paintings" of the past two decades. In an essay that explores each of these creative periods in detail, Michael Taylor reveals how Chimes has found inspiration in the writings of literary heroes such as Antonin Artaud, James Joyce, and especially Alfred Jarry, the iconoclastic French playwright and novelist whose invented Pataphysics—the "science of imaginary solutions"—has provided the artist with a seemingly inexhaustible font of imagery.
