“A conceptual work- one which followed completely a predetermined course of design-as happens in the fields of design, belongs essentially to theory and critism and not to art as such…”

-Jack Tworkov  (excerpt from a 1968 journal as printed by Art in America book review Dec. 2009)

Jack Tworkov (1900-1982) was one of the founders of abstract expressionism in America, working with such great artists as Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock.¬† “The Writngs of Jack Tworkov: The Extreme of the Middle” was recently published by Yale University Press, and I look forward to reading it.
