    Dore Ashton’s new book on the Australian artist David Rankin’s ‘New York Years’ provides illuminating insights into the development of the numerous themes expressed in the paintings and sculptures he has created over recent decades. Its 288 richly illustrated pages amply document this range of ideas. Peter Carey’s introduction offers glimpses of Rankin’s youth and earlier career in Australia, and Ashton develops this narrative, extending her analysis into the years after his marriage to poet Lily Brett and their move to a New York still redolent with the influence of Robert Motherwell, Mark Rothko and many others. The extended quotes from Rankin that intersperse the text affirm the genesis of his art in a long-term investigation of Buddhist thinking and calligraphy, and knowledge of Western literary sources such as the writings of James Joyce, Primo Levi, Walter Benjamin and poets like the American Wallace Stevens.
