Louise Bourgeois, suspension by Louise Bourgeois( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 104 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

Joan Mitchell : drawing into painting by Joan Mitchell( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 97 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
