Book Description
"No painter, dead or alive, has ever made us more aware of our eyes than Bridget Riley."-The New Statesman Uncompromising and remarkably innovative, Bridget Riley is one of the most respected artists working today.

Riley first attracted critical attention with the dazzling black-and-white paintings she began to make in 1961 under the "Op Art" banner.

Paul Klee: The Nature of Creation: Works 1914-1940

From Library Journal
"I cannot be pinned down here and now/ because I live as well with the dead/ as with the unborn./ Somewhat closer to the heart of creation than usual,/ And still not close enough." Klee's tombstone engraving speaks volumes to the way the Swiss artist lived and died, which art scholar Kudielka and artist Riley attempt to capture here. Klee (1879-1940) was a fundamentalist of sorts who spent his life tapping into and maintaining the flow of his creative source; his was a honing of skill into its barest necessity. The development of his work over the last 26 years of his life is lavishly illustrated in this volume, which clearly delineates how he extracted nonessential elements to create pure rhythm and polyphony. The authors provide a succinct discussion of Klee's later work, with interesting snippets from his...

Book Description
The myths and realities of the "swinging sixties" provide the backdrop to this unique and beautifully illustrated book, which accompanies an exhibition at Tate Britain. In an age when Britain was undergoing rapid social and cultural change, aesthetics were also being transformed, resulting in new departures in the form and content of British art. Unlike previous books on the subject, Art and the 60's: This Was Tomorrow explores the blurring boundaries within art of the time and its evolving relationships with other cultural forms.

The work of artists David Hockney, Bridget Riley, Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, David Bailey, Colin Self, Eduardo Paolozzi, and Allan Jones, among others, is examined alongside developments in the media, photography, popular culture, architecture, and advertising. Art and the 60's is...


Beyond Geometry: Experiments in Form, 1940s-1970s
Lynn Zelevansky (Editor)

July 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In the decades following World War II artists in Europe, North America, and South America began experimenting with geometric forms. Rebelling equally against the mathematical purity of earlier geometric modernism and what many saw as the emotional excesses of abstract expressionism and Art Informel, these artists emphasized three-dimensionality, the repetition of modular elements, the conceptual underpinnings of art, and the performative to engage the viewer in the creative process and achieve broader intellectual, sensual, and emotive range in their work. Beyond Geometry, which accompanies an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, showcases over 200 works by 139 artists that chart the development of these experiments in form. It is noteworthy that artists on three continents began exploring these...
