Medium: cyanotype print Forrest Bess (1911-1977) was a fisherman who lived much of his life in isolation on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Still, for twenty mid-century years, he exhibited his paintings at Betty Parsons in New York. But his wish to exhibit his medical works based on the unification of male and female sexuality alongside his paintings was not to be realized in his lifetime.
Sculptor Robert Gober, who was invited to exhibit at the 2012 Whitney Biennial, chose to submit a curated exhibition that pays homage to Bess, to his wishes, and to a selection of his visionary paintings, journal entries and archival photographs. Where Parsons demurred, Gober’s installation offers a breathtaking look at Bess’s exhaustive writings on hermaphroditism, alchemy, mythology and mysticism as well as photo documentation of Bess’s own self-surgical procedures that morphed him into something of a pseudo-hermaphrodite.

Menil Collection surveys brooding work of Forrest Bess, painter and visionary
“The legend of Forrest Bess (1911–77), an abstract painter and self-described “visionary” championed by New York dealer Betty Parsons in the 1950s, is endlessly intriguing. After suffering a head injury in the army, Bess moved to a fishing camp outside Bay City, Texas, where he lived as the town eccentric—painting his uncontrollable visions until his death in 1977. Curated by Clare Elliott, the artist’s first museum retrospective in nearly 25 years features some 40 paintings and a work on paper, as well as a contribution by sculptor Robert Gober, originally created for the 2012 Whitney Biennial. Gober’s selection of archival material relates to Bess’s “thesis” that becoming a hermaphrodite was the key to immortality, which led the painter to perform self-surgery in 1955.”. Read more:

In later seascapes such as The Great Wave (1857), Le Gray would famously resolve the problem of capturing both ocean and clouds by printing his seascapes from two negatives-one exposed properly for the shore and sea, the second for the sky. This first essay, however, was made with a single negative and succeeded by taking advantage of the reflective qualities of sea, as opposed to land, and by suggesting the effects of twilight or moonlight rather than bright daylight. Brig on the Water was among the most famous and widely distributed photographs of the nineteenth century, enjoying enormous success in England as well as in France. A London printseller’s advertisement in The Times in November 1856 made the incredible claim of “800 copies subscribed for in two months.”
