Big Bertha. "Peter Booth: Human/Nature" by Jason Smith (with John Embling and Robert Lindsay). [review]
At each stage of his retrospective, Booth comes across as a burdened artist. That burden is what Smith and Lindsay seek to unpack. Their modus operandi is to hurl big words, high-end concepts and luxuriant quotations at the paintings, hoping that something will stick. Rhetorically, they strive to go toe-to-toe with the paintings.
