Yayoi Kusama by Laura J Hoptman( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (b.1929) has pursued her principal themes of infinity, self-representation, sexuality and compulsive repetition since she took the New York art world by storm in the late 1950s with her 'Infinity Nets': a series of heroically-scaled paintings covered in endlessly repetitive net-like patterns, which won the admiration of artists ranging from Barnett Newman to the discriminating Donald Judd. In Kusama's installations and sculptures she compulsively covers every surface, either in polka dots (Infinity Mirror Room, 1965), mirrors (Endless Love Show, 1966) or phallus-like protrusions (Violet Obsession, 1994). This book signifies the first ever monograph on the astounding 40-year career of this established, deeply daring and tirelessly experimental artist, who represented Japan at the Venice Biennale in 1993. It was published to coincide with an exhibition in 2000 at the Serpentine Gallery. Overall, Kusama is internationally respected for her soft sculptures and psychedelic installations, through which she also explores themes of love and obsession throughout her work, in all its diversity: from her net-like pattern paintings begun in 1959, to her Pop-inspired love happenings in the 1960s, to installations whose every surface has been completed boundlessly by a complex but always distinct pattern. A visionary whose work is unique in the panorama of post-war art, Kusama is known not only as an artist but also as a fashion designer, poet, novelist and film-maker -- all documented in this uniquely comprehensive monograph. American art historian and Museum of Modern Art curator Laura Hoptman examines in her Survey the gradual transitions in the artist's work, from painting to performance to installation, in the context of her international artistic contemporaries. Japanes poet and critic Akira Tatehata discusses with the artist her own evolving relationship with her work and how it is received in Eastern and Western contexts. German-born art historian Udo Kultermann focuses on the artist's seminal installation work Driving Image (1959-64), which he exhibited in Essen, Germany, in 1966. For Artist's Choice, the artist has selected tanka poems by Takuboku Ishikawa (1886-1912), a renowned Japanese poet who, like Kusama, combined the expression of personal suffering with great formal innovations in his work
Trova by Udo Kultermann( Book )

9 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Trova's uniqueness among contemporary American artists lies in his close adherence to a chosen theme - man in his environment. His entire output is a work-in-progress that gains in richness and knowledge with each new variation. This volume finally makes it possible to view his work as it should be viewed - in its totality. The author, Udo Kultermann, shows that this theme was apparent even in Trova's earliest paintings and assemblages. Although these were influenced by Dubuffet and De Kooning, Trova soon found his own voice in the series Study/Falling Man, which he developed in paintings, graphics, assemblages, and sculptures for over a decade. In tracing the artist's evolution from his self-taught beginnings to his present status as a sculptor of originality and force, Kultermann emphasizes the continuity of Trova's work over thirty years, always returning to the theme of man as the point of departure. In the early 1970s, Trova found a new expression of his theme on a large scale in the Profile Cantos. These led to the monumental series of the 1970s - the Gox, Abstract Variations, Geometric Variations. Although these series of sculptures do not deal with man in figurative terms, man in his environment remains Trova's overriding concern. Kultermann discusses the parallels to Trova's Falling Man in art, literature, and philosophy, both of the past and the present. He also examines Trova's fascination with popular imagery and products, which has resulted in such works as Trova/Index and Time Capsule, his personal catalogues of Americana. Statements by the artist himself illuminate the theory and philosophy behind his work. Udo Kultermann, professor of architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, was the director of the City Art Museum of Leverkusen, Germany, from 1959 to 1964. He has published numerous articles and books, including The New Sculpture, The New Painting, Art and Life, and The New Realism. His thorough and inclusive text is beautifully illustrated with 176 plates, of which 48 are in full color. Notes, biological outline, lists of one-man shows and group exhibitions, selected bibliography, and an index complete this handsome volume on one of America's important contemporary artists. -- from dust jacket
