Jess, "Rintrah Roars...': Salvages VI, 1965-81, at Tibor de Nagy.
Jess often incorporated the frame into his work, using frames found at thrift stores and flea markets. This plexi-encased piece pictured above isn't an example of that... it was added years later for a museum exhibit... but I love it.
Detail of a Jess painting set in frame, wrapped at edges with something velvety.
Al Loving surrounded some of his paintings with something soft and velvety also.
(first time i saw a jess was in a group show at the pma, when reason dreams, which included mildred greenberg... sam hand-wrote out the complete list of participating artists)
