Ralph L. Wickiser: The Reflected Stream, The Abstract Years
Published by: Walter Wickiser Gallery, Inc.
Release Date: May 22, 2012
Beginning in 1985, Wickiser's paintings of the stream begin to evolve into a purer form of abstraction. This marked a radical departure from the stream as he had painted it from 1975 to 1985. From 1985 until his death in 1998 the stream continued to be a source of inspiration and synthesis of representation and abstraction. The hardcover edition includes 128 pages, with 104 illustrations including 62 plates in full color. The book includes an introduction by David Adams Cleveland, an illustrative history by Ralph Wickiser, as well as essays by Gerrit Henry, Lilly Wei and Judd Tully.
