Praise for David Park, Painter "This clearly is a fresh, new take on painting from an author who knows Park's work from the beginning. I warn you: once you start reading, you won't put this book down, absorbed by the intermixing trance of memory, of her intimate understanding of the art process, and her close stories that illuminate her father's strong character. Original deep insights enliven the reader's experience of what it is to create honest beauty in this world. The text is juxtaposed with exquisite visual samples of David Park's work. I assign this book to my students. I want to assign it to the whole country."--Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones and The Great Spring "'As if the colors took my gaze for a ride' is how Helen Park Bigelow recalls her instinctive response to the paintings of her father David Park's brief abstract phase, while seeing, in likewise perfect accuracy, his better-known figurative works as "heavy with being." The "ride" taken in Ms. Bigelow's family memoir is fueled steadily by eloquence and wide sympathy, as well as just plain good storytelling. Thus is an intimate account of this important artist fleshed out with warm attentiveness to not just the development of the central character and his works but an entire milieu."--Bill Berkson, author of Expect Delays and Homage to Frank O'Hara
