A Tribute to William Graham AnthonyBy Dore Bowen
APRIL 2023 | In Memoriam
William Graham Anthony, an artists artist known for his satirical paintings and drawings, died tragically on December 24, 2022 at the age of 88. His death was caused by complications after rushing into a fire that engulfed his ninth-floor apartment at Westbeth Artists Housing in New York City. It is likely, friends agree, that he rushed into the blazing apartment to save his artwork, which lined the walls of the studio he shared with his wife Norma (née Neuman) for forty years.

Chih-Chien Wang: A Bright CircleBy Marc Mayer
APRIL 2023 | ArtSeen
Theres a quietness to Chih-Chien Wangs photographs, in aggregate as well as individually. Like Vilhelm Hammershøi and Giorgio Morandi, hes a stay-at-home artist for the most part. In fact, he stays mostly in the kitchen. His humble poetry of daily life has an opportunistic iconography, pleasant things noticed while going about his day. But the signature subject is groceries. The fruit and leafy things he eats, or their detritus, are shot in morning light against backgrounds tinted pale. The neutral studio lighting promotes the isolated subject, but sometimes a darker setting is used for more insistence. Generally, these portraits of comestibles arent tantalising. Cut or otherwise abstracted by meal preparation, they may be partially or even largely consumed, or just shy of expiration.
