William Bailey: Studio FictionsExhibition catalog with essays by Mark Strand and Andrew Forge. 28 pages with color images. Published by Robert Miller Gallery, New York, 1999. This catalog illustrates paintings and drawings of nudes that were exhibited at the Robert Miller Gallery in 1999. Mark Strand writes in his essay, " [The nudes] urge us, even dare us, to define what they do to us. They compel our attention in an unusual way. They seem to be waiting for something, whether for something to begin or to end-the viewer's gaze perhaps-we don't know. They appear to acknowledge the fact that they are posing, that they are resigned to stillness. They have an inexhaustible sadness about them, a singular and disarming beauty."
