From 1990 to 1994 New York artist Robert Rahway Zakanitch created an extraordinary body of work entitled The Big Bungalow Suite, a series of five enormous paintings, each 11 by 30 feet. These colossal canvases are the culmination of more than two decades of his painting. This volume illustrates the series and includes an in-depth interview with the artist in which he discusses the ideas that have shaped his art.
The Big Bungalow Suite melds Zakanitch's earlier influences with a subject matter inspired by childhood memories of the domestic interiors of his childhood -- floral rugs, painted plates, and patterned linoleum floors. David Pagel in the Los Angeles Times said that The Big Bungalow Suite embodies "life affirming grandeur".
