Clyfford Still : the late works by Dean Sobel( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume celebrates the powerful late works of Clyfford Still (1094-1980), the pioneer of Abstract Expressionism and one of the most influential and enigmatic painters of vanguard group, which included artists such as Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, and Willem De Kooning. The large-scale paintings of Still's late career are virtually unknown to the public and many are published here for the first time. This relevatory book investigates the paintings and drawings Still made after his move to rural Maryland in 1961. This marks a particularly fertile period for Still; here, he made over 375 works on paper before his death in 1980 at the age of 75. Given Still's especially reclusive posture later in life and the fact that none of the artworks in Still's estate were exhibited or made available to anyone before the opening of the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver in 2011, this publication of 40 paintings and 30 works on paper is especially meaningful. The publication also coincides with a landmark exhibition of these works at the Clyfford Still Museum. --adapted from jacket

"Born and raised in Montreal, Rockburne first studied at the city's École des Beaux-Arts with Paris-trained painters Paul-Émile Borduas and Jean-Paul Riopelle. Beginning in 1950, she attended the legendary Black Mountain College in Asheville, North Carolina, where classes with Merce Cunningham, John Cage, and, perhaps most significantly, the mathematician Max Dehn, had a seminal influence on her work. With fellow students Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, and John Chamberlain, she thrived in the unique cross-disciplinary curriculum at Black Mountain and brought this sense of exchange and collaboration when she moved to New York, working in dance and performance in renowned early pieces with Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, and Carolee Schneemann, among many others. Rockburne's work, with the use of materials such as cardboard, sheet metal, and crude oil, began to gain wide attention in New York in the 1960s; in 1971 she had her first solo exhibition at the famed Bykert Gallery. From this early minimalist vocabulary, Rockburne has expanded the discourse to include investigations of, among other themes, the Golden Section, the solar system, and the writings of Pascal, all seamlessly joined in an ongoing synthesis of rigorous intellect and ardent pursuit. This first career retrospective will be accompanied by a 160-page catalogue with 52 full-color illustrations, published by the Museum and distributed by ARTBOOK -- D.A.P. Essayists include the curator, Alicia Longwell, who will provide an overview of the artist's profound engagement with the history of art. Three additional contributors will investigate salient aspects of Rockburne's career: Stéphane Aquin, Curator of Contemporary Art, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, will write about Rockburne's early years in Montreal and the cultural and artistic climate that shaped her future development as an artist; art historian David Anfam will examine Rockburne's work within the context of art world movements and strategies of the 1960s, 70s and 80s; and Robert Lawlor, author of Scared Geometry: Philosophy & Practice, will probe the artist's lifelong engagement with ancient knowledge. The catalogue will also include a selected chronology of life and work with artist's statements."--Publisher's website

James Bishop by Molly Warnock( Book )

1 edition published in 2021 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Huit artistes réunis par Molly Warnock, parmi les nombreux qui ont été profondément marqués par l'œuvre aussi rare que décisive de James Bishop (1927-2021) de part et d'autre de l'Atlantique, partagent leur regard sur le peintre américain. L'œuvre du peintre américain James Bishop (1927-2021), installé principalement en France dès 1958, s'est développée singulièrement en regard des traditions européennes et nord-américaines de l'abstraction d'après-guerre. Employant un langage pictural unique révélant le processus de création, Bishop investit pendant trente ans aussi bien l'espace des toiles que des papiers. A partir de 1987, il privilégie exclusivement la surface restreinte et intimiste des papiers

Clyfford Still the late works by Clyfford Still( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clyfford Still (1904-1980) is a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism, along with Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, and Willem de Kooning. This revelatory book, accompanying a groundbreaking exhibition, investigates Clyfford Still s late work, both in painting and in drawing, made after his move to rural Maryland in 1961. This marks a particularly fertile period for Still; he made over 375 works on canvas and a staggering 1,100 works on paper in Maryland before his death in 1980 at the age of 75. Given Still s especially reclusive posture later in life and the fact that none of the artworks in Still s estate were exhibited or made available to anyone before the opening of the Clyfford Still Museum in 2011, a full-scale presentation of these forty paintings and thirty works on paper is especially meaningful. In addition to essays by Dean Sobel and David Anfam, the artists Alex Katz and Dorothea Rockburne contribute texts on the notion of late work

Chuck Close : a portrait of a leading contemporary painter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An astounding portrait of one of the world's leading contemporary painters, this film was one of two parting gifts (her second is a film on Louise Bourgeois) from Marion Cajori, a filmmaker who died recently, and before her time. With editing completed by filmmaker Ken Kobland, Chuck Close highlights the life and work of a man who has reinvented portraiture. Close photographs his subjects, blows up the image to gigantic proportions, divides it into a detailed grid and then uses a complex set of colors and patterning to reconstruct each face. The genius of this film is not only to allow the artist to illuminate his methodology (he is wonderfully articulate), but also to feature his friends and colleagues (Brice Marden, Robert Storr, Dorothea Rockburne, Philip Glass, Arne Glimcher, Kiki Smith, Elizabeth Murray, Alex Katz, Kirk Varnedoe, among others) who make important contributions to appreciating Close's gifts -- container

14 Americans : directions of the 1970s by Robert Pincus-Witten( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The multiple means of making art after the end of illusionism led these artists to create performances, sculptures, earthworks, tableaux, furniture, shaped canvases, and more, using unusual materials. They explore the process of making forms and giving meanings to those forms. In this idea art, their focus is as often social and psychological as artistic. Some of their activities enlist engineering and construction techniques, others compose texts or scripts that are central to their art. Some cast the viewer in the role of a spectator, while the others demand active participation. The sources for their concepts and art works are equally diverse; the delicate proportions and balance of Early Renaissance painting, the exploration of the surface of the moon, the structure and inventions of vernacular architects, to name only a few
