Wednesday morning update, 12/20: A space adjacent to the triage center has been found, and the paintings and drawings will be moved there to be worked on. More paintings will be moved to the triage center for inspection as the new space comes online. Thank you everyone for your support and offers of help-- deeply appreciated!
Update, late day Monday, 12/17: Ronnie has brought more than 50 large paintings to the triage center, as well as over 100 works on paper. The paintings are still being assessed individually.
Many of the works on paper, some from more than 30 years ago, were heavily damaged and many will be lost.
The paintings that are at the center are getting a better diagnosis for the most part.
Ronnie met with a team of art conservators yesterday, who are making room to help Ronnie with his work in an art triage center in Brooklyn. The task now is to move many canvases to the center for treatment.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed thus far-- tremendously appreciated, and will help make a big difference. We are still gathering the details on the full scale of the effort in consultation with art conservators, and will know more as things develop. Thank you all for your assistance at this challenging time.
Ronnie, I am only just now hearing this devastating news! I don't know how I missed hearing about your studio damage. Hoping that you are able to save your work! I will always remember my 1988 studio visit. I was in awe! Still am. Hugs, Linda Lu
