Painting is a continually expanding and evolving form of creative expression whose ongoing relevance is here convincingly asserted by renowned critic and art historian Suzanne Hudson. Her book offers an original survey of contemporary work a critical snapshot that brings together more than 200 artists from around the world who are defining the painterly ideas and aesthetics of our time. The introduction maps out the history of painting in the modern and postmodern eras, followed by six chapters that offer a wideranging thematic analysis of the field, addressing such ideas as appropriation, attitude, production and distribution, the body, painting about painting, and painters who introduce performance, installation and textiles into their work to critique painting itself.
Text by Jason C. Kuo.
Timeless Painting presents the work of 17 contemporary painters whose works reflect a singular approach that is peculiarly of our time: they are a-temporal, a term coined by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, the originators of the cyberpunk aesthetic. A-temporality or timelessness manifests itself in painting as an ahistoric free-for-all, where contemporaneity as an indicator of new form is nowhere to be found, and all eras co-exist. Published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art that explores the impact of this cultural condition on contemporary painting, this publication features work by an international roster of artists including Joe Bradley, Kerstin Br├Ątsch, Matt Connors, Nicole Eisenman, Mark Grotjahn, Charline von Heyl, , Julie Mehretu, Oscar Murillo, Laura Owens and Josh Smith, among others. An overview essay by curator Laura Hoptman is divided into thematic chapters that explore topics such as re-animation and reenactment, recontextualization, Zombie painting, and the concomitant Frankenstein approach, which describes a process of stitching together pieces of the history of painting to create a work of art that would be dead but for its juxtaposed parts, all working in association with one another to propel the work into life.
""Glee" is a volume dedicated to new developments in the world of contemporary painting - developments that engage with and reflect advances in digital technology rather than running away from them. Including such already-renowned and up-and-coming painters as Peter Halley, Franz Ackerman, Ricci Albenda, Pedro Barbieto, Linda Besemer, Alex Blau, Greg Bogin, Alex Brown, Ingrid Calame, Sharon Ellis, Jeff Elrod, Carl Fudge, Wayne Gonzales, Jim Isermann, Sarah Morris, Stephen Mueller, Albert Oehlen, Monique Prieto, John F. Simon Jr., and Yek, "Glee" documents how these artists are innovating via the influence of styles as diverse as Op art, Pattern & Decoration, early computer graphics, and late 1960s psychedelia. The catalogue was designed by the rising young firm COMA, and features a gatefold that divides the book into two halves: the first dedicated to the artworks themselves, which folds out, and the second devoted to essays and artist biographies."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
