“Despite his anarchistic impulses, Wojnarowicz [pronounced voyna-ROH-vitch] was a methodical worker, a planner. The Rimbaud series was carefully developed through notebook drawings, examples of which are on view. Self-taught, he painted the way certain writers write, with deliberation rather than grace, putting down one word, one idea, one image at a time, wedging and stitching them into a dense visual weave.”
