Published on the occasion of the James Castle exhibition at the Douglas Hyde Gallery, December 4, 2009 - January 20, 2010. Includes foreword by John Hutchinson, text, Right at Home - James Castle & the Slow Life Drawing, by Joseph Grigely, and images of works from the exhibition.
This one is another total winner from our favorite Gallery in Dublin. Much has been said about the notoriously reclusive James Castle, but the pictures is still where it's at and this lovely little volume is well aware of that. Outsider this and Art Brut that, these are some of the most heartbreaking renditions of domestic life you'll ever see and show the work of an outstanding artist.
