|Breaking Through: Richard Bellamy and the Green Gallery, 1960 – 1965 |
By Erik La Prade
Midmarch Arts Press, 2010
"La Prade synthesizes a rich and sometimes superfluous account, often seeking consensus among the recollections. In doing so, he provides a more expanded view of this brief period between Abstract Expressionism and the Pop and Minimalism movements than can be found in most accounts, while discarding the historical terminology and revisionism that has since occurred in canonical texts." -- Greg Lindquist, THE BROOKLYN RAIL
Erik La Prade is also the author of the poetry chapbook SWATCHES (Poets Wear Prada, 2008) now available at Amazon.com.
