Philosophical aesthetics and the sciences of art by Royal Institute of Philosophy( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Musical listening, looking at paintings and literary creation are activities that involve perpetual and cognitive activity and so are of interest to psychologists and other scientists of the mind. What sorts of interest should philosophers of the arts take in scientific approaches to such issues? Opinion currently ranges across a spectrum, with 'take no notice' at one end and 'abandon traditional philosophical methods' at the other. This collection of essays, originating at a Royal Institute of Philosophy conference at the Leeds Art Gallery in 2012, represents many of the most interesting positions along that spectrum. Contributions address issues concerning aesthetic testimony, the processing and appreciation of poetry, the aesthetics of disgust, imagination, genre, evolutionary constraints on art appreciation, creativity, musical cognition and the limitations or productiveness of empirical enquiry for philosophical aesthetics
Ben Nicholson, Winifred Nicholson, Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis, William Staite Murray : art and life, 1920-1931 by Ben Nicholson( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the artistic partnership of Ben Nicholson and Winifred Nicholson in the 1920s and their friendship and collaboration with Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis, and the potter William Staite Murray. Inspired by each other, the Nicholsons experimented furiously and often painted the same subject, one as a colorist the other more interested in form. Winifred wrote of her time with Ben, 'All artists are unique and can only unite as complementaries not as similarities'. New research based on previously unpublished letters, photographs and other material draws out their fascinating connections. All the works, many of which are previously unpublished, are illustrated in full color, each with comments relating to the work by the artists and their critics."--Publisher's description

Slow painting by Martin Herbert( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication presents the works of 19 contemporary painters that share a common stance now identified as 'Slow Painting', either in its creation, its apprehension by the viewer and/or its relationship to art history. Moving from representation to abstraction, these artists insist on the phenomenological experience, creating works that reveal themselves slowly, as a riposte to the contemporary tendency towards an art that is 'fast', quickly made and then consumed
Fiona Rae : maybe you can live on the moon in the next century by Fiona Rae( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title examines Fiona Rae's paintings from the last decade when she began to explore, in painterly analogues, many of the new visual conventions familiar to a post-Photoshop generation. She mixes graphic and cartoon imagery with abstract marks and spontaneous gestures to create an iconoclastic synthesis of painterly languages
New sculpture in Britain by Michael Newman( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his 1982 essay, at a time of disillusionment with the idea of progress, Michael Newman discusses how British sculptors employed a variety of means--from recycling discarded objects to synthesising cultural archetypes--in what amounts to a rejection of the linear view of history, concluding with Tony Carter's, 'By Bread Only' - for the 'Demise of Icons' (1978-9), recently acquired for the Leeds Museums and Galleries Sculpture Collections. Jon Wood and Michael Newman discuss the place of Carter and his work in the field of sculpture in the early 1980s and consider this work's inclusion in Whitechapel Art Gallery's British Sculpture in the Twentieth Century catalogue, but not, in the end, in the actual exhibition. Newman also gives his thoughts on his 1982 essay today. The essays also examine the work of other important British artists including Tony Cragg, Bill Woodrow, Jean-Luc Vilmouth, Kate Blacker, Alison Wilding, Antony Gormley, Richard Deacon, Shirazeh Houshiary and Anish Kapoor
Eileen Agar : Angel of anarchy by Laura Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eileen Aigar (b.1899 Buenos Aires; d.1991 London) is an often overlooked but crucial figure within the development of European twentieth-century culture. Throughout her 80-year career she synthesised elements of both cubism and surrealism to create a unique personal style suffused with intelligence, wit, irreverence, and emotion through a century of huge social and political change. Previously appraised in relation to her connections to better-known male figures of British and European modernism such as Paul Nash, Ezra Pound, Roland Penrose and Paul Eluard, this first major survey of her work will place her firmly as a pioneering surrealist artist in her own right, illuminating her progressive attitudes to making, sexuality and art history. This timely monograph will feature rarely-seen work, as well as new contributions by writer Marina Warner, poet Daisy Lafarge and Aigar's biographer Andrew Lambirth.0This book is available in blue, red, mustard and maroon; books are shipped to customers at random.00Exhibition: Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, UK (19.05.-29.08.2021) ; Mjellby Konstmuseum, Halmstad, Sweden (25.09.2021-09.01.2022) ; Leeds Art Gallery, Leeds, UK (29.01-07.05.2022)
