Mark Tansey by Judi Freeman( Book )

Mark Tansey's paintings show that these formalist dogmas criple painting by taking away its ability to articulate thought and feeling about our world. It dogmas construct an incumbering chamber of gates, walls, and shackels. Mark Tansey's wit and humor, brings metaphor and discourse back into the art of painting
The picture in question : Mark Tansey and the ends of representation by Mark C Taylor( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A rich exploration of the possibilities of representation after Modernism, Mark Taylor's new study charts the logic and continuity of Mark Tansey's painting by considering the philosophical ideas behind Tansey's art. Taylor examines how Tansey uses structuralist and poststructuralist thought as well as catastrophe, chaos, and complexity theory to create paintings that please the eye while provoking the mind. Taylor's clear accounts of thinkers ranging from Plato, Kant, and Hegel to Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, and de Man will be an invaluable contribution to students and teachers of art.<B

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a monochromatic style, American painter Mark Tansey teases the viewer with images that explode into paradoxes. In The Innocent Eye Test, one of his most famous works, a cow led into a picture gallery by academic savants inspects a painting of a bull. In other paintings, Eskimos on dogsleds almost converge with Bedouins on camels in visual planes that never meet, and Jackson Pollock walks on water. Spiked with allusions ranging from John Ruskin to Albert Einstein, Tansey's wryly subversive pictures mock the avant-garde, parody Jacques Derrida's theme of the world as text and reiterate the inexhaustible possiblities of pictorial space. In this dazzlingly illustrated monograph, Danto, art critic of the Nation and professor of philosophy at Columbia University, places Tansey within a tradition, extending from Velazquez to Magritte, of artists who probe the philosophy of picture-making. Danto's sensitive readings are open to the multiple meanings of Tansey's provocations."--Publisher's Weekly
