Catalogue Note

“from Joe’s studio you couldn’t see outside because the floor-to-ceiling red velvet curtains were only partially open…Joe was in his kitchen, sitting in the dark in a Metropolitan Opera Egyptian-style black velvet chair. He was listening to Maria Callas…isolated in the dark, far away from everybody…Joe’s need to be an artist had led him away from everything familiar: his friends, his family, his home, society.”
