About this Work
Throne of Bacchus, New York
Arthur Tress has been producing important, cutting edge work since his staged street photography in the 1960s-70s. While there is already a separate exhibit up on this work, this Special Exhibit focuses on a new facet of his creativity: his large-scale color work based on now destroyed installations that he created in New York City and Paris.
This installation work--most of which Tress himself pulled together and spray painted in an abandoned hospital on New York's Welfare Island--is a largely unknown facet of this artist's extensive career, because the hospital was torn down without the work being shown to the public.
The photographs are the only documentation of these stunning compositions and are prime examples of some of the cross-fertilization of different art forms/media that has taken place over the last few decades.
