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

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 171 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

Acts of reparation : Hayv Kahraman : September 8-December 31, 2017 by Hayv Kahraman( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"CAM presents Hayv Kahraman: Acts of Reparation, highlighting the evolution of the artist's practice where the protagonist female body is pictured in various sequences and activities. Fueled by her experience as an Iraqi immigrant, Kahraman is concerned with the multitude rather than the self. Kahraman says of her protagonist, "She is one who dwells in the margins, surviving and navigating a life of spatial and temporal displacement. She is at once an agent of both personal and collective memorial transmission and an interrogator of future and present realities. Acts of Reparation presents a collection of paintings that span multiple bodies of work from 2011 to the present. All works offer insights into the notion of migrant consciousness, resulting in an endless process of mending. \"

Wyatt Kahn : object paintings by Wyatt Kahn( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hovering in the space between sculpture and painting, the work of New York-based Wyatt Kahn (born 1983) reinvigorates the legacy of minimalism. His large-scale paintings collapse figuration and abstraction, encapsulate dynamic energy into geometric form and embrace imperfections and raw surfaces in an entirely human way. 'Wyatt Kahn: Object Paintings' features work from Kahn's first solo museum exhibition at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. With an essay by scholar Robert Slifkin, the book also includes an interview between the artist and exhibition curator Jeffrey Uslip. Slifkin places Kahn in a 'vitalist tradition of modernism' that includes Ad Reinhardt, Frank Stella and Donald Judd. But in contrast to those more pristine artists, Kahn allows imperfection in his work. 'Every part of my work is made by my hand, which is a flawed hand, ' he tells Uslip, 'I embrace my natural flaws, and that vulnerability becomes empowerment.'
