Brice Marden : work of the 1990s : paintings, drawings, and prints by Charles Wylie( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Ryman by Charles Wylie( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Ryman is considered one of the preeminent abstract painters of the last fifty years. This remarkable book features over two dozen of Ryman's works from the 1960s to the present, all of which demonstrate his keen desire to investigate the essential properties of a painting - its color, surface, texture, support, and relationship to the wall on which it is displayed - in order to achieve direct and unmediated painterly effects. The book comprises works from the artist's own collection as well as from private and museum collections and includes a number of paintings that have never before been published. The beautiful illustrations document the artist's career-long experimentation with and deviation from white - a basic, universal, and supposedly neutral color that becomes highly flexible and suggestive in Ryman's hands - as well as his interest in using a variety of surfaces, from industrial metal to linen to canvas. Ryman has created an unexpectedly varied, complex, and broad body of work within his chosen boundaries and continues to create some of today's most challenging paintings

Donald Sultan : the disaster paintings by Donald Sultan( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critically important series in the oeuvre of American painter, sculptor, and printmaker Donald Sultan, The Disaster Paintings were created between 1984 and 1990. These works feature imposing, man-made structures, whose industrial qualities are reinforced by Sultan's preferred media, Masonite tiles and tar. The paintings' resulting sense of robust permanence is offset by the catastrophes Sultan includes therein, which provoke a jarring sense of fragility, impermanence, and transience. Such unexpected juxtapositions are privileged by the artist's process itself, which merges the industrial materials of Minimalism with representational painting, stylistically combining figuration and abstraction and making simultaneous reference to high and low culture. Painted on a large scale (the majority of the works in this series measure 8' x 8'), The Disaster Paintings embody great physicality in their process, subject matter, and finished form. They also reify the modern experience of industrialized societies with images of fire, accidents, and industrial mishaps, daring us to forget that calamities and adversity are woven into the very fabric of our existence. It is a timely moment in history to reconsider and reassess The Disaster Paintings
Gary Simmons : paradise by Gary Simmons( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Struth, 1977-2002 by Thomas Struth( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in German and English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographer Thomas Struth (b. 1954), one of the most intriguing, challenging, and gifted artists to emerge from Europe in the past two decades, has created a beautiful and distinctive body of images depicting the world - its buildings, people, society, and culture - in its present moment of perpetual change. Unlike many of his contemporaries who have investigated photography's fictional potential, Struth has adhered to a straightforward yet formally refined approach that makes his viewers become aware of their world in often entirely new ways." "This catalogue is the first to encompass Struth's entire body of work, dating from the late 1970's to the early 2000's. His early black-and-white photographs of deserted city streets, his psychologically penetrating portraits of individuals and families, his renowned "museum pictures," and his large-format color landscapes of nature and industry from around the globe are all represented in this unsurpassed collection of images. Engaging essays by well known photography and art experts chronicle Thomas Struth's career: Charles Wylie examines the development of Struth's art and places him in the context of photographic history of the last century; Maria Morris Hambourg and Douglas Eklund review the artist's aesthetic and intellectual influences and maturation; and Ann Goldstein investigates the role portraiture has played in Struth's art. This survey attests to the unmistakable importance of his photographs and his valued place in the history of photography and contemporary art."--Jacket
