This monograph of essays explores the fascinating artwork of Creative Growth artist, Donald Mitchell. For nearly twenty years, Mitchell’s densely populated drawings have filled Creative Growth’s gallery and studio with his crowds of unmistakable figures. Cheryl Rivers brings together a group of internationally known writers and collectors to explore the questions raised by Donald Mitchell’s work. Essays address topics ranging from the use of repetitive motifs, the context of Outsider art, an implied ‘center,’ understanding Mitchell’s work in the studio, and exploring the impact Donald Mitchell has had on collectors, artists, and scholars throughout the art world. Right Here, Right Now includes forty beautiful photographs of rare and exemplary work by Donald Mitchell, drawn from international private and public collections.
