Stephen J & M Palmer: 1882–1965

Stephen J & M Palmer: 1882–1965, December 12, 2008 – January 31, 2009 at Carl Hammer Gallery in Chicago, IL. "...Stephen Palmer produced a massive record of Christian faith in the guise of roughly 400 known and recently discovered gouache paintings on paper. As private devotional works, they demonstrate the layered complexity and subversive potential of religious images. As artifacts uncovered, they speak about an era. As a collective effort, they hold clues to reconstructing the psychology and motivations of an individual driven by an obsessive-compulsive mysticism."
