The work of the American painter James Bishop (1927-2021), based mainly in France since 1958, stands in a singular relationship to the European and North American traditions of postwar abstraction. Over a period of thirty years, Bishop worked on both canvas and paper and developed a unique pictorial language revealing the process of creation. After 1987, he restricted himself exclusively to the confined, intimate space of paper formats. As rare as it is decisive, his oeuvre has profoundly marked artists on both sides of the Atlantic, including the eight brought together here by Molly Warnock.
