At the time _____________’s work consisted largely of futuristic landscapes with half-naked women in the foreground. “It was kind of schlocky cheesecake art,” he admits. But Mr. Deitch saw something there.

“Jeffrey said, ‘This work will make a lot of people angry,’ ” _____________ remembers, with a laugh. “He said it, and then he walked out of the room. I took that as a good sign.”

He wasn’t offered a solo show right off the bat. “Why don’t you take a few years in New York and really develop the work?” Mr. Deitch recalls telling him. “____________ liked that idea.”
