Musings

Barbara Kassel and Jed Devine live and work together in studios in New York City and Martha's Vineyard.  This book was made in conjunction with their joint exhibition at the Clark Gallery in Lincoln MA in 2015.  We called the show Musings as that is what we do with each other's art.  It is an ongoing conversation

Still Life, book by Barbara Kassel

Many of the paintings in this BOOK were painted directly from still life set ups. In the larger paintings that include both interior and still life, I work from different set ups and then collage them within the painting space. Working this way allows for a fluid and sometimes surprising play between the objects and their surroundings. My objects are chosen for their formal properties and their ability to evoke narrative and symbolic aspects.

In the Despoiled and Radiant Now

The title of this book comes from a Stephan Dunn poem, "A Postmortem Guide".  The paintings are from an exhibition at the A Gallery on Martha's Vineyard in 2017 and comprise 3 series of paintings:  Mosaic, Italian Fresco and Martha's Vineyard paintings
