Deborah Butterfield by Robert Gordon ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Deborah Butterfield transforms pieces of scrap metal and found wood into majestic, life-size horse sculptures that are, as art historian Wayne L. Roosa has written, "like ancient, noble archaeological remains, skeletal and grand." Her sculptures also may be the first works to explore the interior lives of horses - a long overdue answer to centuries of martial and monumental equine art." "This volume presents a retrospective look at this important American artist. At the core of the book are color photographs of the sculptures, installed in galleries, in the artist's studios, and at Walla Walla Foundry. An insightful essay by novelist and horsewoman Jane Smiley sensitively captures the depth of Butterfield's passion for horses both living and sculpted. John Yau, poet and art critic, adds a formal analysis of the artist's work. In a selection of poems, the late poet Vicki Hearne, a close friend of Butterfield's, translates this world of horse-human dialogue. Robert Gordon has followed the artist's career for a quarter century and brings unique insight and vision to her body of work."--BOOK JACKET
A thing among things : the art of Jasper Johns by John Yau ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author focuses his attention on how the artist's pioneering paintings relate to life as it is lived and on what they tell us about what it means to be mortal and alive in time. He clears a path through the tangle of narrowly self-reflexive interpretations that have plagued so much critical writing on Johns's work during the past half century, providing a fresh approach and opening our eyes to Johns's accomplishment in revealing ways.--P. 2 of dust jacket
