3 x abstraction : new methods of drawing, Hilma af Klint, Emma Kunz, Agnes Martin by Hilma af Klint( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"3 X abstraction presents the extraordinary work of three artists from different generation who have approached non-objectivity and abstraction not as formalism, but as a means of structuring philosophical, scientific, and transcendental ideas. Using line, geometry, and the grid, Hilma af Klint (Sweden, 1862-1944), Emma Kunz (Switzerland, 1892-1963), and Agnes Martin (Canada/U.S., 1912-2004) developed methods of drawing relationships between the phenomenal world and the ideal world in support of the belief that art is fundamentally linked to the forces and processes of life." "This catalogue gathers in its pages the rarely reproduced compositions made by Hilma of Klint between 1895 and 1920; the complex geometrical line tracings of Emma Kunz, exhibited in the United States for the first time; and contemplative early works by Agnes Martin from the 1960s and 1970s. By considering collectively the works of these three artists, 3 x Abstraction presents the work of af Klint and Kunz, eclipsed for so long, and revisits the work of Martin from a new perspective to highlight the pioneering position those artists assumed in the history of modern abstraction."--Jacket

Agnes Martin : paintings, writings, remembrances by Agnes Martin( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Agnes Martin's career spanned over seven decades. Though a major influence on Minimalist painters, Martin saw her own work, more closely related to Abstract Expressionism, her paintings being 'meditations on innocence, beauty, happiness and love.' More than 130 of these works can be found in this book. Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances is the first and only complete career retrospective of the visionary painter. This important and beautiful book brings together 130 of Martin's paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art. Letters and facsimiles are reprinted in Martin's own hand, and cut to notebook size, adding an element of intimacy for the reader. The Pace Gallery founder, Arne Glimcher's illuminating introduction, his personal remembrances of visits to Martin at her studio, and their correspondence throughout her career, reveal much about the artist's life and work." -- Publisher's description
Brandon Shimoda's Portuguese by Brandon Shimoda( Book )

The poems in Portuguese began while Brandon rode city buses around Seattle, and were inspired by his fellow passengers?their voices and their minds, their faces and their bodies, their exuberances and infirmities, and the ways in which they enlivened and darkened the days at once. It was with and within these people that poetry seemed most alive. At the same time, they began as responses to the words and writings of visual artists, mostly painters, whom Brandon was reading while riding the bus, especially Etel Adnan, Eugène Delacroix, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Klee, and Joan Mitchell, all
