In Acquavella Galleries’ panoramic view of Jean Dubuffet’s mindscape we are in familiar territory, immersed in sand, oil emulsion, butterfly wings, tobacco leaves, tar and gold. Dubuffet used terms like “Anticultural” and “Art Brut” to characterize his vision, in homage to an underground world where the “sap is richer” and where art is dedicated to madness.... Aquavella’s knock-out exhibition of judiciously selected works from the 1940s through the early 1960s illuminates the philosophical roots of his pictorial language.
Acquavella Galleries “Jean Dubuffet: Anticultural Positions” ... is the sort of in-depth, big-ticket exhibition that only a few galleries can pull off, and even fewer are inclined to mount. ... Especially important are Dubuffet’s underappreciated early sculptures: men of sorrows crafted from driftwood.
