Description

Infinite Gradation is an astonishing meditation on the moral, emotional, and philosophical implications of love and the creative act, especially those creative works that, as George Steiner has said, "make a deposit in the bank of terror." Michaels has chosen to draw on that "bank" - to embrace life through an unblinking confrontation with the terror that is death in our time - by speaking through the work of three great artists, recently dead, who were her confidants: the sculptor Eva Hesse, the painter Jack Chambers, and Claire Wilks, print maker and sculptor "who could draw like few others."
