James Magee and his art (in particular, The Hill) has been the subject of numerous extensive articles including Granta Arts Magazine and Wall Street Journal. Because he creates in uniquely different styles in the personae of Annabel Livermore and Horace Mayfield (two artists he refuses to acknowledge), he has created a mystique as a renegade artist. The Hill received national attention and comparison with Walter de la Maria's Lightning Field from his major retrospective at the Nashar Sculpture Center (Dallas Museum of Art) curated by critic Richard Brettel. Brettel was also the editor and curator of James Magee's The Hill (Prestel Press, 2010), a major book of photographs and texts, including a number of titles (poems). A remarkable performer, especially when collaborating with avant garde musicians (Kronos Quartet, for example), Magee hopes to travel to large city venues to perform and promote his book of poems. The website for the Cornudas Foundation in El Paso documents with text and photographs, the oeuvre of James Magee, especially The Hill. They also archives performances of poems included in Letters to Goya.
