Tom Friedman by Bruce Hainley( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Tom Friedman is an unusual young American sculptor who produces quirky yet beautiful sculptures out of household objects-pencils, plastic cups, laundry detergent, paper straws. Featured in cream and in a one-person presentation at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Friedman has quickly gained an impressive following of some of the most attentive and influential contemporary art-watchers in the United States. This is art which raises questions about the making and seeing of art, about the pleasures of small transformations producing sudden beauty. This book will coincide with Friedman's first major American museum tour, to be held in 2000-2002. American art critic Bruce Hainley examines the artist's work as a kind of giant self-portrait. Poet and novelist Dennis Cooper discusses with the artist such unexpected influences as contemporary electronic music. Guardian art critic Adrian Searle looks at the artist's work Untitled, 1993-a ring of plastic cups in a home-made Minimalist tradition. The Artist's Choices are The Dinner Party (1919) by Swiss writer Robert Walser, and the glossary to Info-Psychology (1975-76) by Timothy Leary, the cult psychologist who advocated the use of psychedelic drugs. Facsimiles of the artist's notebooks and text works are published alongside an important interview by curator Robert Storr
Peter Doig by Peter Doig( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and French and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether painting a mysterious bearded figure floating on a flat wash of blue or a winter landscape glimpsed through a thick web of branches, Peter Doig harnesses the materiality of his medium to create what he calls 'abstractions of memories', distilling recollected sensations into moments of pure sentience, like scenes in a series of mysterious narratives. In "Gasthof zur Muldentalsperre" (2000-2) two costumed figures stand guard at a low stone wall while behind them a reservoir reflects a twinkling starry sky. The young man bundled up against the cold in "Blotter" (1993) contemplates his reflection in a frozen pond, while in "Red Boat (Imaginary Boys)" (2004) six men in white shirts navigate upstream through a dense tropical landscape. Doig's work has been exhibited at the world's top museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and has been selected for contemporary art's most important international exhibitions, such as the SITE Santa Fe Biennial (2006), the Tate Triennial (2003 and 2006) and the Venice Biennale (2003). Although his work has had an enormous impact on contemporary painting, paving the way for a whole generation of idiosyncratic figurative painters, his painted worlds are without parallel. Raised in Canada, based in London for two decades and now living in Trinidad, Doig has tallied a wide range of references, not only geographic (from French modernist architecture to the ski slopes of Quebec) but also artistic (from Ernst Kirchner to Philip Guston) and musical (from punk to calypso). Sometimes these references lurk in plain sight--"Figure in Mountain Landscape" (1997-98) is based on a photograph of Group of Seven painter Franklin Carmichael--but most often they lie deep below the churning surface of the canvas. In the Interview, Kitty Scott asks the artist about his shifting sense of place and the way it continues to shape his work. In the Survey, Adrian Searle considers how the paradoxical union of highly charged technique and muted subject matter lend the artist's paintings their unique 'emotional weather'. Catherine Grenier's Focus centers on the painting 100 Years Ago, examining its movement along axes of time and place, both historical adn imaginary. In the Artist's Choice, Hannes Schneider & Arnold Fanck's text on skiing recalls the artist's longtime fascination with the sport while evoking the grace and physicality of his painting. Artist's Writings include a 2001 interview featuring questions from a range of artists, curators and critics; an appreciation of the work of Pierre Bonnard; and the artist's ten favorite 'house painters'

Look up Glasgow : world class architectural heritage that's hidden in plain sight by Adrian Searle( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stunning coffee table book of Glasgow's world-class architectural detail, hidden in plain sight at the tops of the city's iconic buildings Glasgow is Scotland's largest city, its streets a constant frenetic bustle of activity, but rarely do its residents take the time to stop and look up at the extraordinary architectural heritage all around. Glasgow's image belies this world-class architectural detail, comprising of stunning sculpture, ornament, friezes, gables, and decoration, the vast majority of which are hidden in plain sight above eye level. Writer Adrian Searle and specialist architectural photographer David Barbour have scoured the city, bringing together in one volume a fabulous record of the hidden jewels of the second city of the Empire, created in a time of great wealth and virtuoso craftsmanship now long gone. The book also includes poetry from six of Scotland's leading poets, responding in very individual ways to Glasgow's extraordinary urban environment. This collection will be a beautiful surprise to residents, visitors, and non-residents alike, demonstrating that it is much more than just another post-industrial British city. It will be a book that those passionate about the city and about architecture will treasure
