The many faces of Jonathan Yeo by Jonathan Yeo( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Yeo (born 1970) is one of Britain's best-known portrait painters. Over more than a decade, he has gained an international reputation for painting some of the most famous faces of our age: Nicole Kidman, Dennis Hopper, Kevin Spacey, Stephen Fry, Damien Hirst, Sienna Miller, Rupert Murdoch, Grayson Perry, Tony Blair and Prince Philip are just a selection of the many household names who have sat for Yeo. Renowned for his distinctive, highly figurative canvases and controversial collages, he employs a range of media and techniques to create a diverse body of work that expands the traditions of portraiture while examining contemporary perceptions of beauty, celebrity and power. Coinciding with a retrospective exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery, The Many Faces of Jonathan Yeo is the first major publication on the artist. Featuring his most popular paintings, drawings, collages and prints, the book also presents several new canvases made especially for the show. Alongside his intimate portraits of well-known sitters are dramatic and unsettling studies of cosmetic surgery patients that document the compulsive and painful pursuit of physical perfection. Dozens of studio shots and photographs of works in progress reveal Yeo's working practice and chart the process of creating individual portraits. Numerous contributions from his subjects lift the lid on what it is like to be scrutinized by the artist's exacting, forensic eye and to have oneself captured on canvas

In the darkest hour there may be light : works from Damien Hirst's murderme collection by Serpentine Gallery. <London>( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to accompany the exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, London in November 2006, In the darkest hour there may be light provides a revealing and concise overview of Damien Hirst's murderme collection to date. As Julia Peyton-Jones puts it in the Director's Foreword to this beautifully produced catalogue, "Damien Hirst's groundbreaking and controversial work has made him one of the world's best-known living artists. From the start of his career, Hirst adopted the role of curator, organising a series of exhibitions with a group of young artists who would come to define cutting-edge art in the 1990s." Hirst has continually bought and collected works by artists who have inspired and influenced him, such as Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Richard Prince, by artists from his own generation such as Sarah Lucas, Angus Fairhurst and Marcus Harvey, and by those at the early stages of their careers such as Rachel Howard, Nicholas Lumb and Tom Ormond. Accompanying the 75 excellent full-color plates of works by the 24 artists exhibited in the show is a humorous but poignant essay by artist and writer Harland Miller reflecting on the idea of collecting from childhood, how obsessive it is, and what a collection is to a collector and to those who see a collection. But it is the interview between Hirst and Hans Ulrich Obrist that gives a direct insight into the motivation and reason behind the murderme collection, and how it relates to Hirst the artist and Hirst the curator. Completed over three months during the summer of 2006, this interview discusses everything from his most famous works, his drawings, influences, practice and attitude towards art, to new projects such as Toddington Manor and the Newport Street Gallery. In many respects 'In the darkest hour there may be light' is perhaps the most comprehensive and intriguing project Hirst has done yet: "Collecting is the way the world works, as a human being. As you go through life, you just collect ... I always think collections are like a map of a man's life.""--Amazon.com
Yayoi Kusama now by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book comes in three different color patterns (all with the same cover design).The most comprehensive book devoted to the incomparable and iconic work of Yayoi Kusama. Yayoi Kusama, now in her eighties, has become a vital force in contemporary art and an influence on generations of artists. Arriving in New York City in 1958 from her native Japan, she embarked on a series of works that forged a new visual vocabulary--the Net paintings, which were composed of scores of small, thickly painted loops spanning large canvases. Her singular approach to art making continued in other extraordinary bodies of work, including the phallic soft sculptures which she later incorporated into full-scale environments. In 1973 she returned to Japan, where she lives and works today. Since then, she has created dazzling walk-in mirror rooms and her now-famous pumpkin sculptures, as well as writing poetry and novels. In this book--created in close collaboration with Kusama and her Tokyo studio--the breadth and import of this watershed artist's career are considered in depth. In addition to studies of the development of her artistic vocabularies across different media, the book includes ephemera, sketches, and photographs from the artist's extensive archive that have never been seen before. The publication is timed to coincide with the artist's major touring retrospective, which makes its American debut at the Whitney Museum in New York in summer 2012, as well as with the much-anticipated collaboration with powerhouse fashion brand Louis Vuitton.Contributors include: Leslie Camhi, RoseLeeGoldberg, Laura Hoptman, Chris Kraus, Arthur Lubow, Kevin McGarry, Louise Neri, Akira Tatehata, and Olivier Zahm

The Wolseley drawings by Damien Hirst( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breakfast at The Wolseley gave Damien and I the perfect opportunity to discuss the business of the day, remembers Frank Dunphy, Damien Hirst's business manager, "the bow-tied super-ego to Mr. Hirst's id," as The Wall Street Journal has described him. "Always on time, Damien would first hold out his hand for a pen or pencil and would then begin sketching on the back of his placemat." Portraits of Frank is published to coincide with Dunphy's retirement after almost 15 years with the artist. Seen here for the first time, Hirst's portraits were sketched during the pair's regular breakfast meetings at the famous Wolseley restaurant in London between 2004 and 2010. They provide a touching illustration of Frank and Damien's collaborative relationship as it unfolded over the course of some of the most extraordinary years of the artist's career

Their works were first exhibited side by side in the Tate in 2008. The text by Damien Hirst is amended from an original introduction written for the exhibition catalogue 'Margaret Mellis', Austin /Desmond Fine Art, London 2001. A reproduction of a hand written letter from Margaret Mellis to Hirst from circa 1987 is also included."--Publisher's website
