Drawing people : the human figure in contemporary art by Roger Malbert( Book )

16 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The act of drawing has long been considered the foundation of an artistic education, and the life class essential to the formation of an artist's style and technique. Yet in the contemporary art world drawing is increasingly regarded as a medium in its own right, and the figure as a subject for ongoing exploration well beyond the sketchbook. Featuring an international roster of over seventy artists working with pencil, ink, crayon, watercolour and charcoal, 'Drawing people' brings to life one of the most creatively rich and emotionally powerful forms of art being made today. An introduction places the medium of drawing in its historical context, discussing its intersection with photography, painting, collage and illustration. Five chapters -- 'Body', 'Self', 'Personal lives', 'Social reality' and 'Fictions' -- include short introductions outlining each theme, followed by commentaries on individual artists exploring their style, ideas and techniques, accompanied by finely reproduced images of their recent work

A universal archive : William Kentridge as printmaker by William Kentridge( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique and beautifully presented book includes almost one hundred prints in all media, from 1991 to the present, with a stress on experimental, collaborative and serial works. William Kentridge's distinctive use of light and shadow and silhouettes, his concern with memory and perspective, and his absorption in literary texts, are all strongly in evidence throughout this book, which provides new insights into the working methods of this prolific artist. Kentridge is internationally acclaimed for his drawings, films and theatre and opera productions. He is also an innovative and prolific printmaker; he started his career studying etching at the Johannesburg Art Foundation, and printmaking has remained central to his work ever since. Over the past 25 years, he has produced more than three hundred prints - etchings, engravings, aquatints, silkscreens, linocuts and lithographs - often experimenting with challenging formats and combinations of printing techniques to create highly-worked, intensely atmospheric imagery. Kentridge is producing 40 new prints for the accompanying exhibition some of which will be illustrated in this book. His prints range in scale from intimate etchings and drypoints to linocuts on rice paper and canvas measuring 2.5 metres high. Also featured is Portage (2000), an accordion-folded multi-panelled book, 4 metres long, with torn paper silhouetted figures dancing across unbound pages of the French encyclopedia Le Nouveau Larousse Illustre. The procession is one of Kentridge's great themes, ultimately a symbol of humanity's journey through life

Louise Bourgeois : autobiographical prints by Louise Bourgeois( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collecting two intimate and personal print series created late in her career, 'Louise Bourgeois: Autobiographical Prints" opens a window into the mind of this celebrated artist.

Juul Kraijer : werken 2009-2015 by Juul Kraijer( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Dutch and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kraijer maakt tekeningen, beelden, foto's en video's van onwerkelijke situaties waarin vrouwenfiguren worden samengevoegd met dieren of met landschappelijke elementen. Hun lichamen worden bijvoorbeeld in bezit genomen door een zwerm vliegen of opgenomen in het wortelstelsel van een oude boom. Soms bevinden ze zich in een school vissen, soms is hun hoofd bedekt met oren in plaats van met haar. Altijd zijn ze intrigerend en combineren ze schoonheid met vervreemding. Het Drents Museum toont een selectie uit haar tekeningen en beelden. Het CBK Drenthe presenteert gelijktijdig foto's en video's van Kraijer. Exhibition: Drents Museum, Assen, The Netherlands (24-05-2015 - 20-09-2015)
