John Cage about silence

Besides Ed’s daily painting and drawing practice, he loved talking about philosophical approaches to creativity and process. John Cage was a good point of reference (think of what he says about sound, and apply it to the visual world).

Rest in power, Karl 🌟

It’s with great sorrow that we learned of Karl Wirsum’s passing last week—he was a friend and inspiration to all of us at Pentimenti. An inaugural member of the Hairy Who, Karl was, simply put, one of the greatest artists Chicago has ever known. He was an integral part of our 2014 documentary, “Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists,” and we later restored a long-lost archival documentary about his time in California. Over the coming weeks, we'll be celebrating Karl’s life and work with artwork, interviews, and film excerpts.

It is with great sadness that we’ve learned of the passing of artist and educator Karl Wirsum. He was fundamental for the Chicago Imagists, the Hairy Who, and a good friend of Ed’s. Rest in power Karl, our deepest condolences to the Wirsum family and all his students.
