Sounds of the Inner Eye
Wulf Herzogenrath
0295982748
Aug 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Sounds of the Inner Eye explores the artistic and biographical connection among three of the Pacific Northwestís most significant and highly respected artists. Mark Tobey, often aligned with the abstract expressionists, was a pioneer in integrating elements of Asian art into mystical, calligraphic paintings. Morris Graves, known as something of an art world maverick, combined Eastern religious beliefs and a deep appreciation of the natural world in his work, focusing initially on the Northwestís birds and vegetation. John Cage, an avant-garde composer, philosopher, writer, and printmaker, began his visual creations with graphic representations of musical scores, and then evolved to include printmaking, drawing, and watercolor. Sounds of the Inner Eye explores the lives and careers of these three men who...


Northwest Mythologies
Sheryl Conkelton
0295983221
June 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Some of the best-known modern painters in the American Northwest, the artists Mark Tobey, Morris Graves, Kenneth Callahan, and Guy Anderson have been called the leaders of a "Northwest School" since the 1940s. But a detailed investigation of their interactions from 1930 to 1954 shows the perception of these four artists as a cohesive group to be a myth. Northwest Mythologies offers a new analysis of their interactions and accomplishments, and places their art and ideologies in the larger context of American modernism. Although the four artists exchanged ideas and shared common interests, they were close friends and colleagues for only a few years around the time of World War II. Each experimented with stylistic elements admired in the others’ painting, yet they produced distinctive, widely ranging bodies of work...

Iridescent Light: The Emergence of Northwest Art
Deloris Tarzan Ament
0295981474
December 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Former Seattle newspaper art critic Ament profiles a series of 20 artists active in Washington State during the formative periods of their careers, moving from the 1930s forward. Beginning with painters Mark Tobey (1890-1976) and Morris Graves (1910-2001) and including many lesser-known artists, the works of this loosely defined Northwest School reflected the area's isolation, marine landscape, and diffused light. After a brief introduction, Ament provides appreciative chapters on the artists, only a minority of whom won recognition outside the region. (Randlett, whose photographs illustrate much of the book, is one of those profiled.) Based on firsthand knowledge and interviews, the book provides a real feeling for the individual artists; Ament writes in clear, appreciative journalistic prose, focusing on the...


James Martin: Art Rustler at the Rivoli
Sheila Farr
0295980923
February 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
James Martin started his career the same way a lot of aspiring painters do--by imitating other artists. During the 1950s and 60s, he nabbed imagery and mannerisms from Mark Tobey, Morris Graves, van Gogh, Picasso, Chagall, and Calder. But the real source of Martin's mature style isn't buried in the mysticism of the Northwest School or the avant garde trends of European Modernism: it traces back to his days at Ballard High School during the 1940s. He and a buddy used to cut class and head downtown to the Rivoli Theater on Seattle's First Avenue to watch the burlesque. The surrealism of those shows percolated into Martin's psyche and his paintings--once he started to trust his own view of things--began to sprout the ambiguities of burlesque and the black humor of slapstick. Now when Martin paints a Northwest scene, it's...

Zen in the Fifties: Interaction in Art between East and West
Helen Westgeest
9040098921
March 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Throughout Western history, interest in the Far East has moved in waves, in ever-changing patterns. Zen in the Fifties looks at the influence of the East, and of Zen Buddhism in particular, on a number of recent Western artists. Interest in Zen grew in the 1950s as new artistic, philosophical and psychological theories opened up the way for Western artists to explore both interior and exterior landscapes. Helen Westgeest brings into her analysis the work of John Cage, Ad Reinhardt and Mark Tobey in America, and Yves Klein and Pierre Alechinsky in France, and shows how the ideas, methods and works of these and certain other artists display affinities with those of the Zen masters. The influence of modern Western art on Japanese artists is also discussed, providing a little–noticed perspective on the...
