Russell Forester: Unauthorized Autobiography
Unauthorized Autobiography is a thirty-year retrospective of Foresters paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations which looks at his art in the context of his relentless experimentation and his parallel career as a renowned and award-winning architect. Forester advocates that all creative people adhere to the time-honored ideal of the Renaissance man, or what is known colloquially in America as the jack-of-all-trades. He believes that rather than focus on one narrow specialty, people should work in an ever-widening sphere of creative activity: sensitivity to aesthetic issues in one field automatically enhances ones awareness of what is going on in other fields. Essays by Alain J.-J. Cohen and Michel Zakian.
