Artspeak Eulogy

“… several writers called Mr. Gorchov’s paintings ‘primitive,’
but he preferred ‘rudimentary.’ They took painting back to basics,
to a primal state and a set of motifs that changed only a little,
flirting with repetition but rarely succumbing to it.”

Roberta Smith in The New York Times  this afternoon.

Gorchov reportedly “died on Aug. 18 at his home in Red Hook, Brooklyn.”

See as well some art remarks on Aug. 18 in this  journal
