The art of Rachel Whiteread by Rachel Whiteread( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and Italian and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rachel Whiteread is perhaps the most important living British artist. In The Art of Rachel Whiteread a group of leading critics from museums and universities in Europe and North America examine the full range of Whiteread's work, from the early domestic pieces of the late 1980s, through to her most recent public art projects such as Monument and Room 101. These essays examine both the art historical legacy of post-minimalism within which Whiteread works and the historical commentaries that her site specific projects engender, and they suggest new critical approaches to what is likely to be one of the most enduring artistic projects of our time."--BOOK JACKET
RW : Rachel Whiteread by Charlotte Mullins( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rachel Whiteread has single-handedly expanded the parameters of contemporary sculpture with her casts of the outer and inner spaces of familiar objects, sometimes in quiet monochrome, sometimes in vivid jewel-like colour. She won the Turner Prize in 1993, the same year as her first large-scale public project, House, a concrete cast of a nineteenth-century terraced house in London's east end. Further site-specific projects include Holocaust Memorial in Vienna's Judenplatz and Water Tower in New York. With 100 colour illustrations, this book by writer, editor and broadcaster Charlotte Mullins is the first significant survey to examine Whiteread's career to date."--BOOK JACKET
Rachel Whiteread drawings by Allegra Pesenti( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This elegant volume accompanies the first museum survey of drawings by Rachel Whiteread, tracing her career from the late 1980s to the present. While Whiteread's public works such as House, the monumental cast of a nineteenth-century terraced house in the East End of London that earned her the Turner Prize, Water Tower, which graced the skyline of downtown Germany, and Untitled Monument in Trafalgar Square are renowned, her works on paper have remained largely unknown to the general public. This book explores Whiteread's draftsmanship, a lesser-known yet fundamentally important aspect of the artist's creative process. My drawings are a diary of my work, Whiteread explains, and like the passages in a diary her drawings range from fleeting ideas to laboured reflections. This book sheds light on the distinctive characteristics of her works on paper, such as their variegated textures, the subtle nuances of tone over colored graph paper, and the play of imagery in collaged constructions. It presents exquisite reproductions of Whiteread s drawings, with essays by Allegra Pesenti and Ann Gallagher. A visual essay by Whiteread is a distinguishing feature of the volume, reflecting an installation of found and made objects gathered from various sources. Taken as a parallel to her sculpture or seen as a further dimension of her art, her drawings constitute a significant and defined area of Whiteread s remarkable career, one that deserves close attention and celebration
