James Castle meticulously studied the environments he called home and curated his own body of work, selecting and editing, grouping and displaying his pieces--in his home, in his work space--to envision a personal sense of place. Primarily working in images, but often with lettered texts and lines that may imply text, he assembled and often bound pages, drew over existent texts in previously published books, and illustrated figures, landscapes, and architectural compositions on found materials from his surroundings. In doing so, he created a self-published collection of artist books that provide a unique glimpse into his process of making.

In honor of Castle’s processes, the exhibition James Castle: Eighteen Artist books will present a humble collection demonstrative of his curatorial practices. Books will open to pages that reflect his deliberation and intended execution through use of patterns, pictorial juxtapositions, repetition of techniques and vernacular materials in order to draw new and familiar audiences into a conversation with this artist and a small portion of his artist books.
