Elmer Bischoff : the ethics of paint by Susan Landauer( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elmer Bischoff (1916-1991) is generally regarded as one of the leaders among the artists in the San Francisco Bay Area who, after contributing to the local emergence of Abstract Expressionism during the 1940s and 50s, shifted the terms of their spectacularly sensual brushwork to recognizable imagery. Bill Berkson writes that if "David Park was the classicist of the founding triad of the Bay Area Figurative painters, and Richard Diebenkorn the modernist, Bischoff was the romantic." Designed to accompany a major retrospective of Bischoff's work, this volume is illustrated with duotones and color plates that faithfully capture the subtle variations in shade that characterize the painter's oeuvre. Berkson and Susan Landauer, both of whom knew Bischoff, provide the definitive view of the life, art, and teaching career of this important artist."--Jacket

From the publisher. This stunning exhibition catalogue celebrates in-depth for the first time Richard Diebenkorn's seminal Ocean Park works, serving as a major reference and a source of new scholarship on the series. As he traversed the worlds of abstract expressionism and figurative painting, Diebenkorn became one of America's most beloved postwar artists. The Ocean Park series, begun in 1967and comprising works in a variety of media, is arguably the most celebrated of his illustrious career. This book features beautifully reproduced works that radiate with color, allowing readers to appreciate the artist's evolving palette as well as his brilliant geometric explorations. The paintings, prints, drawings, and collages that make up the series are examined from diverse perspectives in essays that bring to light new influences and conceptual frameworks that reposition the Ocean Park series, as well as the artist's role in the history of postwar art. The result is a timely re-examination of a major body of work that will excite the numerous fans of this quintessential California artist

Girls' night out by Elizabeth Armstrong( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Girls' Night Out brings together the work of an international and intergenerational group of women artists whose works in photography and video reflect a new approach to issues of femininity and identity. The artists in Girls' Night Out create works that possess a quasi- documentary feel and a directness of approach as they engage with such classical art genres as self-portraiture, portraiture (especially featuring young women in the passage from girlhood to adulthood), and landscape. Some of their shared themes include provocative inquiries into youth culture, new notions of beauty, ethnographic techniques mixed with fashion devices, and an interest in journalistic aspects of the media. Formally rigorous and aesthetically resolved, this seemingly traditional imagery is infused by lyricism and psychological complexity. The historical context for Girls' Night Out is found in the photography, film, and performance art of the 1970s and 1980s, which addressed social and political themes, often through provocative satire or irony. The open, fluid approach to gender and sexuality evident in the works in Girls' Night Out is informed by the pioneering conceptual and aesthetic stance of earlier artists but also represents a significant rupture with it. This new work confidently explores female identity without the need to challenge or critique feminine archetypes. The resulting imagery is as uncertain, contradictory, and filled with possibility as the adolescents these artists often portray." (résumé éditeur)

Peter Saul by Peter Saul( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inspired to a creative breakthrough after glancing at a copy of Mad magazine, promoted by the Surrealist Matta, and discovered in Paris, American artist Peter Saul [b.1934] has created often difficult, funny, and trenchant works - "sick jokes," according to Robert Storr. His paintings have taken on subjects ranging from embarrassing personal foibles to important events in American history such as the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, end the atrocities at Abu Ghraib. Given the ongoing lack of recognition for the work of this controversial, influential, and pioneering artist, a deeper examination of Saul's career is Long overdue." "This publication provides the first comprehensive overview of five decades of Peter Saul's paintings and drawings. It features works from the early 1960s through the present, including his first "icebox" painting, examples of his epic historical canvases, satiric works poking fun at art history's sacred cows, paintings that painfully evoke the multiple psychic hazards of being an aging male, and recent works that point to the immorality of current political affairs. Essays by Dan Cameron and Michael Duncan as well as an interview with the artist by Robert Storr illuminate this body of work."--Jacket
Peter Alexander : in this light by Peter Alexander( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Goldstein x 10,000 by Jack Goldstein( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important retrospective volume highlights Jack Goldstein's far-reaching influence. During the late 1970s, Jack Goldstein helped initiate an avant-garde art movement informally known as the "Pictures Generation." Along with fellow artists such as Sherrie Levine, Robert Longo, and Troy Brauntuch, Goldstein merged the concerns of Conceptual art with media issues raised by Pop art and helped initiate a paradigm shift in art that focused on the critical examination of images. Goldstein's films of the mid-1970s, amond his most recognized achievements, appropriated and restaged imagery that referenced its media sources. This companion volume to a new retrospective of Goldstein's work, organized by the Orange County Museum of Art, includes stills from these films as well as reproductions of sculptures, records, installations, paintings, and text-based works to show the breadth of his artistic production. while many of his close associates enjoyed popular and critical success in the 1990s, Goldstein disappeared from the public eye for years. And although he enjoyed renewed acclaim at the turn of the twenty-first century, his career ended tragically with his death in 2003. Featuring critical essays along with Goldstein's last interview, which was previously unpublished, this volume helps restore an important artist to the stature he and his work deserve"--
