"James Castle (1899-1977) spent his formative years in remote Garden Valley, Idaho and his adult life at locations near Boise, where, for nearly seven decades, he devoted himself daily to intensive art-making. Castle worked with materials that were immediately available, including a wide range of ephemera-advertisements, periodicals, and packaging-that he manipulated with soot, sticks, string and improvised colors to create an elaborate and unmistakable representation of his world. Subjects range from the farms of Garden Valley and interiors of homes, to family members, household objects, and snippets of popular culture. Other works move beyond the documentary to include invented words and symbols, fantastical calendars, and books with cryptic pictorial narratives. Since Castle's work first came to light in the 1950s, attention has focused primarily on the unusual circumstances of his life: Castle was born profoundly deaf, remained illiterate, and never acquired a conventional mode of communicating with others. He is often assumed to have lived a form of extreme isolation. This new volume seeks to move beyond such biography; the artworks themselves can be seen as 'windows' on his world and unique life."--
James Castle : mostrar y almacenar by James Castle( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El artista vivió al margen del mundo del arte: su producción artística, concentrada en dibujos con saliva y hollín, construcciones de cartulinas coloreadas adheridas con cuerdas y libros realizados a mano, no poseen título, ni fecha, ni indicación que revele cronología alguna. La incógnita que supone esta técnica heterodoxa y la alteración de las herramientas de clasificación artística, queda subrayada por el hecho de que nunca concedió ninguna entrevista ni realizó comentario alguno que aclarara su obra. Sin embargo, en ella se refleja un especial interés por las posibilidades de la representación visual contemporánea: su tendencia hacia la esquematización y el diseño de sus dibujos, la dimensión siniestra de sus objetos tan cotidianos y foráneos al mismo tiempo, o el interés por representar fragmentos arquitectónicos como si se trataran de proyecciones del organismo humano, revelan alternativas al régimen visual de la segunda mitad del siglo XX
