About

Willows and Palms will be an informal presentation of several recent drawings and screenprints. The drawings are hasty and ham-fisted scribblings of nocturnal scenes in rich pastels, the screenprints more pristine representations of similar scenes in one or two strange colors.
“Some of Thorpe’s work reminds me of Saenredam’s paintings of empty churches,” Dan Graham said, “But it’s all about fantasy.”
As part of the exhibition, Thorpe will be introducing his latest piece of writing, Beginner’s Microbiome, published as alter-ego Joe Beginner. This semi-autobiographical novella is dedicated to the memory of New York writer Harry Mathews. Written in the form of a daily journal, the work is a tribute to the constant strangeness of daily life.
As described by Malcolm Sutton, fiction editor for Toronto’s BookThug press “Joe Beginner is a detective of the everyday, a genius of the senses.”
