Review of JKS Director’s Recent Book

Michelle Naka Pierce’s recent book Continuous Frieze Bordering Red has been reviewed by The Constant Critic. Congratulations Michelle!

From the review: Michelle Naka Pierce’s book-length ekphrastic meditation for Rothko’s Seagram murals, exhibits careful absorption of Stein’s innovations[…]the book creates a vectored conversation with one of Rothko’s greatest achievements: to manifest an experience of the layering that creates a self. A layering, in the case of the paintings and in the case of this book, that doesn’t flake off and thin into air, but deepens with each pulse each breath each bruise.
