WILLIAM ANASTASI USA, född 1933 Subway Drawing (Dec. 28 -90, 6.30 PM) Signerad W. Anastasi. Grafit på papper, 28,5 x 29 cm. Signed. Charcoal on paper. PROVENIENS Sandra Gering Gallery, New York William Anastasi spelade regelbundet schack med konstnären och kompositören John Cage fram till dennes död. På tunnelbanan mellan Anastasis bostad på Upper West Side, New York och Cages adress på Lower Manhattan utförde Anastasi en serie "subway drawings". Med slutna ögon, hörselskydd och penna i varje hand lät konstnären tågets rörelser slumpmässigt utföra teckningen.

Description:
William Anastasi (b. 1933) Two Hours with a Yellow Crayon on Black Paper signed, inscribed and dated '10-19-96 NYC W. Anastasi' (on the reverse) wax crayon on paper 52 x 92 in. (132 x 233.6 cm.) Drawn in 1996. Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner "All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone," the philosopher Blaise Pascal famously noted. William Anastasi is acutely aware of this idea and approached his subway drawings and other meditative works from the 1960s onward with this concept in mind. In 1987, the artist spent exactly two hours drawing on a sheet of paper measuring over 7 feet wide with a bright yellow crayon. The result is titled, Two Hours with a Yellow Crayon on Black Paper, and is an expansive work invoking chance relationships and eschewing overt intentionality. Anastasi, a friend and fan of the late composer John Cage, once said, "All art is conceptual." With this timed drawing, we witness Anastasi's serendipitous homage to meditative states and freedom of movement.
