By using silvered glass Chihuly is able to extend the reflective quality of the glass to manipulate the colors in the works and, in some cases, to magnify the dimensionality and articulation of form. With an introduction by Jennifer Opie that places Chihuly’s silvered glass in its broader historical context, Chihuly Silvered is the first comprehensive survey of Dale Chihuly’s work using silvered glass showcasing the unique beauty of his newest series.
The first comprehensive book accompanying a major touring exhibition by the painter Deborah Kass. More than any artist of the last thirty years, New York City–based painter Deborah Kass has made it her life’s work to position women artists on the great paternal playing field of art history. From her early paintings of the sea pounding rocky shores to her eponymous Warhol Project series and her recent text-based works, Kass has quite literally fired the canon, challenged the status quo, and refigured art history.
Inspired by the forms and forces of nature, Lin Emery’s gracefully undulating kinetic culpture—constructed of highly polished abstract metal shapes—adorn museums and outdoor public spaces around the world. “I love the natural movement of the trees on the levees, the river, and anything in nature,” Emery says. The flowing motion of her structures are also propelled by natural forces; she began using water to power her structures 30 years ago and later utilized wind to also generate movement in her creations. The resulting revolving, twirling, and linked elements evoke plants, trees, clouds, or water. This publication covers the life and majestic sculptures created during a career of nearly 60 years from her education working in clay under Ossip Zadkine in Paris, to her move in the 1950s to New Orleans and her explorations in bronze, aluminum, nickel, and other metals. Emery has been a dedicated student to the craft of metal working since the beginning of her career. In the early years when the metal working studios in New Orleans wouldn’t accept women into their program, she went up to New York to learn welding techniques and to develop her skills.
After years of making large charcoal drawings, James Drake (born 1946) found himself making drawings that were predominately white and airy, from which he extracted images using an exacto knife. The red charcoal drawings also collected here were made in response to the white cut out drawings. Published on the heels of a successful retrospective, this is the first monograph on Drake’s drawings.
