EXPERIENCES WITH EARL BISS - The Spirit Who Walks Among His People
Written in Cooperation with Earl Biss
By Lisa Gerstner
An international award-winning book, the author worked directly with the artist in 1994-1995 when Earl Biss asked her to write his biography.
One of the most powerful books I've ever read. Lisa is superb, and Earl Biss WAS a genius!
~ Cheryl Westphal, Gallery Manager, Aspen Grove Fine Arts
As a close friend and apprentice of Earl Biss for 20 + years, I dove right into this book and appreciated the love, care and reverence Lisa portrayed throughout for a true and flawed genius.
~ Louisa Davidson, Artist
So beautifully written, I was in tears most the time.
~ Gail Scilacci-Abbo, Art Collector
Your extensive interviews and gifted storytelling make this biography an enduring treasure. People who, like me, had never heard of Earl Biss before you brought him to my attention, will become familiar with his life and work for generations. Your book will endure because of your devotion to telling this story.
~ Michael Phillips Mann, Editor
You captured Earl Biss perfectly! How did you do that?
~ Victor Abbo, Attorney, Art Collector, Long-time Friend of Earl
I am LOVING the book. The way you chose to tell the story first-person is very compelling. I can imagine the tremendous responsibility you felt taking on this subject and you've done it justice. The photo of T.C., Cannon, Fritz Scholder and Earl Biss is incredible. When I saw my first painting by Earl Biss, I could instantly recognize something "extra" was taking place both on the canvas and within me. The book is helping me clarify what that was.
