About the Author

Dr. Robert Cozzolino is Curator of Modern Art and Senior Curator at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) and has organized over thirty exhibitions at PAFA, including Jacob Lawrence's Hiroshima (2008), George Tooker: A Retrospective (2009), Narcissus in the Studio: Artists' Portraits and Self-Portraits (2010), and The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making Their World (2012). A champion of underrepresented artists and uncommon perspectives on well-known artists, Dr. Cozzolino has been called the "curator of the dispossessed" for his attention to the underdog.

Reviews

"This impeccable collection of art confirms Lynch's position as a gifted polymath-and one of the country's most important artists working today." Publisher's Weekly "Expands greatly the scope of our knowledge of auteur and impresario Lynch." -- Douglas F. Smith Library Journal "Lynch's last Philadelphia canvases are brutally textural, integrating cigarette butts and filters, matted horse-hair, and bits of unidentifiable petrified organic matter. His more recent work, characterized by broad paint strokes and large-scale dramatic canvases, is more polished in its perversity." -- J. Hoberman The New York Review of Books "Lynch is at his best when grasping just how unsavory we can find deterioration disrupting the mundane areas of our life, especially when evoking it as a reflection of human good and evil, and that holds true in his visual art... There's a definite vision and storytelling with the mix of text and image in the galleries." -- Allison Meier Hyperallergic "He was, and remains, fond of biomorphic shapes, the incorporation of texts, working with textures, playing with dimensionality ... David Lynch began as a painter - he still is a painter." -- Mark Feeney The Boston Globe "Late works find him tapping into primal fantasies of the psychotic annihilation of self and the other." -- Ken Johnson The New York Times "Impressively curated by Robert Cozzolino, The Unified Field makes a case for considering Lynch as 'an artist who happens to make film as part of his expression.'" -- Jonathan P. Eburne The Los Angeles Review of Books "it is fascinating to see Lynch's noncinematic work, especially the earliest canvases ... from January 1966 through the spring of 1967." -- Fred B. Adelson Courier-Post
