Jenny Holzer : redaction paintings by Jenny Holzer( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This elegant clothbound monograph gathers the most recent work by the seminal language-based installation artist, Jenny Holzer. Presented to great acclaim at New York's Cheim & Read gallery this past summer, the work consists of enlarged, colorized silkscreen "paintings" of declassified and oftentimes heavily censored American military and intelligence documents that have recently been made available to the public through the Freedom of Information Act. Beautiful in their own right, the works are also haunting reminders of what really goes on behind the scenes in the American military/political power system. Documents address counter-terrorism, prisoner abuse, and even the threat of Osama Bin Laden. -- From product description

Louise Bourgeois, suspension by Louise Bourgeois( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sculptures in this exhibition all hang from the ceiling. Along with a group of drawings from the 1940s, in which pendulous forms are delineated in black ink, the selection of works traces the theme of suspension throughout Bourgeois's long career. Spanning more than forty-five years -- from the organic Lair forms of the early 1960s and the Janus series of 1968, to the cloth figures of the 1990s, the hanging heads of the 2000s, and the torqued spirals of shining aluminum made in the last years of Bourgeois's life -- they demonstrate the myriad ways in which she approached material, form, and scale. They also affirm the various readings of Bourgeois's work, whether forma, physhological, biographical, or experiential. For Bourgeois, the sculptures' suspension is an expression of the psyche; as she stated: "Horizontality is a desire to give up, to sleep. Verticality is an attempt to escape. Hanging and floating are states of ambivalence." In psychology, ambivalence refers to conflicting but coexisting feelings for the same person, place, or event. The many dualities at play within Bourgeois's oeuvre (organic/geometric; ridig/pliable; male/female) provide this condition with fertile ground. -- Cheim & Read website
Lynda Benglis by Lynda Benglis( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1960s, Lynda Benglis has been celebrated for the free, ecstatic forms she has poured, thrown and molded in ceramic, latex, polyurethane and bronze. In her new work she turns to handmade paper, which she wraps around a chicken wire armature, often painting the sand-toned surface in bright, metallic colors offset by strokes of deep, coal-based black. At other times she leaves the paper virtually bare. These works reflect the environment in which they were made, the ?sere and windblown? landscape of Santa Fe, New Mexico, as Princenthal writes in her essay. ?It is possible to see the bleached bones of the land{u2014}its mesas and arroyos; its scatterings of shed snakeskins and animal skeletons{u2014}in the new sculptures{u2019} combination of strength and delicacy.? Simultaneously playful and visceral, the new works enter into a lively dialogue with Benglis{u2019}s previous explorations of materials and form, but with a raw immediacy inherent to the moist strips of paper she uses as their skin. Stretched, crimped and torn into richly organic shapes, the paper becomes both the sculpture{u2019}s shell and a repository of the artist{u2019}s touch."--Gallery website
Joan Mitchell : drawing into painting by Joan Mitchell( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... Is a survey of works by Joan Mitchell (1925-92) on canvas and paper from 1958 through 1992, the year of her death. For Mitchell, drawing and painting were related but autonomous activities. Her pastels can be as dense as oil paintings, and her oil paintings can be as light and airy as watercolors. The book includes art from each decade of her career, with a formal range spanning flurried strokes and gestural lines of rhapsodic color, to darkly massed forms and complex, multi-panel formats. Mitchell's move to France in 1959, as Mark Rosenthal writes in his essay, "suggests an aesthetic choice whereby she submerged American artistic developments within a profound embrace of French Impressionism." This decision represented a departure from the influences and goals of her colleagues in the New York School, and harked back to her student days at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago."--Amazon.com

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the mid-1950s and the early '60s, the paintings of Joan Mitchell (1925-92) grew exponentially in sophistication and strength. In the summer of 1953 she began to paint outdoors in the Hamptons, developing an engagement with nature, but with a crucial distinction from her male counterparts in the abstract expressionist movement.
