I happend to miss the Jay Defeo Retrospective at SF Moma but was fortunate to catch it at the Whitney in NY. She was associated with the Beat movement in San Francisco and founded Six Gallery where Allen Ginsberg first read the poem Howl. She also create her most prolific work The Rose in her apartment on Fillmore Street. The Rose took her 8 years to finish, (I don’t know how many gallons of paint), and weighed 2300 pounds. When she got evicted from her apartment they had to remove it through the bay windows. Luckily they filmed this daunting task. When I returned back from New York, I walked to see what the apartment now looks like today. It seems to have a different facade.
