Over his four-decade career, painter Kim MacConnel (born 1946), a pioneer of the 1970s Pattern and Decoration movement, has elicited comparisons to Picasso and Matisse for his brightly hued canvases, in which abstracted glyphs spill over into pattern. This important volume contains 65 color images that range over the complete trajectory of MacConnel’s production, plus an interview with the artist by the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego’s curator Robin Clark, and an essay by Richard Marshall.
