Latest reviews of Joe's Auto-Portrait Show at Dickinson

"A New “Old Master” shows in NYC: Joe Coleman Auto-Portrait"
by Robert Marbury of Marbury writes: "Studying Joe’s paintings in his books and online is spectacular. But seeing his work in person is shocking. At the opening of his Auto-Portrait exhibition at Dickinson Gallery in NYC, I felt the same haunted way I felt viewing Lenin’s Tomb in the Red Square twenty years ago. I wanted to just sit in the dark and just study each and every line."
