"Growth 9"• "Growth can be a good thing and a bad thing," says the artist.

ed to return to England because he
didn't feel comfortable enough using
Hebrew as his academic language.
After earning a bachelor's degree at
Kingston University, located in a
suburb. of London, he took the sug-
gestion of a teacher who recom-
mended a Cranbrook program. With
his master's degree in hand in 1979,
Bouskila began designing furniture
and stayed with that work for eight
years to support his artistic projects.
"I sold my landscapes through gal-
leries for 15 years and did some
teaching," Bouskila says. "Since my
wife died, I shifted to abstract and
have done restoration work for
income."
Bouskila's late wife, Lynn
Farnsworth, was a video artist. At
the time of her death, she had been
studying for a doctoral degree in
psychology.
"I spent a lot of time thinking
about cells and growth after she
became ill," says Bouskila about his
current series. "I thought how

growth can be a good thing and a
bad thing, and that was a spring-
board for using the images of cell
structures."
The artist, who had his bar mitz-
vah in England but has turned away
from ritual since then, has written
short pieces about his projects and is
trying to expand his literary com-
mitment by writing a novel explor-
ing art and artists. His theme is
strictly satirical.
"I work all day as if I were at a
formal job," the painter says. "I am
in my studio six or seven days a
week."

"Growth Patterns" will be on
view Nov. 7-Dec. 20 at Center
Galleries, 301 Frederick
Douglass, in Detroit. The exhibit
opens with a reception 6-8 p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 6. Gallery hours
are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-
Saturdays. (313) 664-7800.
