Spine resembles a catalogue raisonné of R. H. Quaytman’s work produced since 2001, the year the artist began organizing paintings in what are called “Chapters.” Conceived and written by Quaytman, this more than 400-page volume presents a full decade’s output from “The Sun, Chapter 1” to “Spine, Chapter 20,” the latest series which revisits motifs elaborated in the preceding nineteen chapters. The artist’s systematic pictorial practice, executed on Golden Section wood panels, is articulated in a text on the book’s unfolding dust jacket.
