Cocaine True Cocaine Blue
Hardcover ISBN: 0893815438
A compelling portrait of three communities penetrated by drugs and isolation: East New York, North Philadelphia, and the Red Hook housing projects in Brooklyn, New York. With a chilling and informative afterword by Dr. Stephen W. Nicholas, who works as a pediatric AIDS physician in Harlem, Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue reveals how first steps toward solutions to overcome the drug trade have actually contributed to public denial and further isolation of the trapped communities. Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue is a history of our times, a compelling, terrifying document that will educate us and promote dialogue, a first step toward affecting change.

"Harvey Quaytman's paintings are distinct for their inventive, whimsical exploration of shape, meticulous attention to surface texture, and experimental application of color. While his works display a rigorous commitment to formalism, they are simultaneously invested with rich undertones of sensuality, decorativeness, and humor--expressed, too, in his playful poetic titles, such as A Street Called Straight and Kufikind. Although Quaytman (1937-2002) made a unique contribution to the history of painting, his work has not yet received the acclaim and attention it deserves; thus, it is overdue for comprehensive institutional consideration. The exhibition at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, including approximately 75 paintings and 25 drawings, will demonstrate the arc of Quaytman's oeuvre, from his radically curvilinear canvases of the late 1960s and 1970s, to his exploration of geometric abstraction in the 1980s, and finally to his serene cruciform canvases of the 1990s"--Provided by publisher.
