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

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 371 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

Mickalene Thomas : origin of the universe by Mickalene Thomas( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mickalene Thomas (born 1971) has won acclaim for her elaborate, colorful paintings of African-American women, often posed provocatively against rich, 1970s-themed backgrounds adorned with rhinestones, enamel and acrylics. Thomas draws from earlier traditions of portraiture to arrive at her contemporary sensibility. She engages with the tension between a personal investigation of eroticism, black femininity and beauty and a pop-cultural critique of the overt sexual imagery prevalent in the media--from Blaxploitation film heroines like Cleopatra Jones to the construction of middle-class, African-American taste in Ebony magazine. Her portraits of trans-generational female empowerment have been receiving attention far beyond the standard art-world venues and have been reproduced everywhere from The New Yorker to Bomb magazine. Thomas also reenvisions landscapes and interiors through playful and passionate recontextualizations of such artists as Romare Bearden, Édouard Manet, Henri Matisse and Balthus. Mickalene Thomas: The Origin of the Universe is the first monograph on the artist, and accompanies her first solo museum exhibition in the United States at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. It features a wide array of full-color reproductions of her work across media--much of it new and never before published--including photo collages and provocative landscapes, along with an interview with the artist and critical texts that elucidate her paintings' investigations of femininity, sexuality and power, and provide extensive context for her oeuvre as a whole
