Lot Essay

“Thek’s art is some of the most radical work of its time and as such defies definition. It is at once two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and performative…His work has a casual, almost haphazard quality, but it is actually remarkably clear, with a repeated precision that reveals itself with repeated study.”

Adam Weinberg and Lynn Zelevansky, Paul Thek Diver: A Retrospective, exh. cat., Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2010, p.6.
