“Who is James R. Bath? A nodal point in Mark Lombardi’s drawing George W. Bush, Harken Energy and Jackson Stephens c. 1979-90, 5th Version, 1999, James R. Bath appears in the upper lefthand corner of the 16 1/2″ x 41″ piece of paper. The spatial syntax of Lombardi’s drawings — which map in elegantly visual terms the secret deals and suspect associations of financiers, politicians, corporations, and governments — dictates that the more densely lines ray out from a given node, the more deeply that figure is embroiled in the tale Lombardi tells.” Reminds me of The George W. Bush Money Tree XPLANE did for Harper’s Magazine.
