John Sacret Young, author, screenwriter, and art collector has published a memoir, Pieces of Glass, reflecting on the profound impact of visual art on his life. He writes about his internal connections with artists such as Charles Burchfield, Richard Diebenkorn, John Marin, Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer and many others. The book is beautifully written and very thought-provoking.
Three of my oil paintings from his collection are reproduced in the chapter titled "Petals on a Bough" which focuses on my large subway composition Local/Switch and seeing it for the first time at the Adelson Galleries. He writes about its surface crowded with people and his relationship with a woman named Bailey ... diverse and enigmatic connections tied together.
