Vtg 70’s Michael Luchs Detroit Mi Cass Corridor Multi Media Collage On Wood
51″ x 41″ x 2″
Luchs was a key figure in the development of the Detroit avant-garde that is named after Cass Corridor – one of the down-and-out areas of the city devastated by the 1967 riots. In the 60’s and 70’s, the Cass Corridor art of Luchs, Gordon Newton, James Chatelain, Brenda Goodman, Ellen Phelan and others had a tough, sometimes violent, almost always experimental quality that reflected the Detroit inner city and made its avant- garde an inspiration for new art throughout the Middle West.
He also did works on paper, like those in this show, which seem to be disintegrating before our eyes. The rabbits are indispensable. Their flowing, organic outlines and silhouettes, their link with fecundity and associations with softness and vulnerability provide a compositional and emotional background against which Luchs can burn and tear away. The shape of the rabbits is do much like a block of stornd or mound of earth that no matter what happens to the surface, we have the sense that something will endure.
