Painter's Journey, A
To paint. To make art. To make a “career” of art. In her unique and honest memoir, Barbara Caruso paints her life vibrant challenging, and engaged as a Canadian visual artist. With a rarity of contemporary avant-garde painters, Carusos memoir emerges as important documentation of the artists creative process. A Painters Journey also provides a much-needed public record of Canadian art exhibits, and tracks Carusos interaction with artists, collaborators, the Toronto art community, and her life with poet Nelson Ball.
A Painters Journey reads like a novel; in spare, elegant prose, Caruso tells the story of a young woman artist navigating the turbulent, fascinating years between 1966 and 1973 in the Toronto art world.
