Rackstraw Downes Under the Gowanus and Razor-wire Journal - The Making of Two Paintings - Publications - Betty Cuningham Gallery

This is a working artist's journal by an impassioned empiricist. Covering six months in 1999, it tells how two four-part paintings got made, entirely from observation, at two Brooklyn sites - a fume ridden highway underpass & a razor-wire fence around subway maintenance yards.
