    Andy Goldsworthy in Close-Up (Hardback)


    ...

    by William Malpas

    Andy Goldsworthy born in Cheshire in 1956. He studied at Harrogate High School, Bradford College of Art (the archetypal British art school ethics of liberalism, experimentation, art history discussions and the embrace of avant garde art prevailed here) and Preston Polytechnic, where he studied on the BA Fine Art course, graduating in 1978. Goldsworthy has lived mainly in the North of the UK: Bentham and Illkley (Yorkshire), Brough (Cumbria) and Penpont (Dumfriesshire). Many of Goldsworthy's site-specific works and commissions have been in the North: the giant maze and Lambton Earthwork (at County Durham, 1988-9), the Grizedale Forest site works (1984 onwards), residencies at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (1987), the Lake District National Park (1988), and so on. Goldsworthy has worked at the Venice Biennale, Grise Fiord and the North Pole, in Japan, Castres and Sidobre in France, and in Haarlem, Holland. He has had one-man shows in France, Japan, Holland and the UK, and participated in groups shows in Italy, Germany, and the USA. A major retrospective, Hand to Earth: Andy Goldsworthy: Sculpture: 1976-1990, was held at the Henry Moore Centre for the Study of Sculpture, Leeds City Art Gallery: the show also travelled to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh, Stedelijke Musea, Gouda and Centre Regional d'Art Contemporain Midi-Pyrenees in Toulouse. Goldsworthy's work has appeared on TV (in, as expected, Channel Four documentaries, The Late Show, an Arts Council film (Two Autumns), and regional news programmes, as well as a couple of Japanese broadcasts), also the ubiquitous appearances on Radio 4's dull arts show Kaleidoscope and Radio 3's arts interview slot, Third Ear. A half-hour BBC TV programme on Goldsworthy's Sheepfolds project was aired in 1997; there was also a Sheepfolds exhibition at Michael Hue-Williams Gallery in London. In the 1990s, Goldsworthy's art began to rise in popularity: the glossy coffee table book Stone became a bestseller. In 1994 Goldsworthy took over some West End galleries with a large one-man show. In 1995 he took part in an intriguing group show at the British Museum, creating sculptures, along with Richard Deacon, Peter Randall-Page and others, in amongst the monumental statuary of the famous Egyptian Hall. Also in 1995, Goldsworthy designed a set of Royal Mail stamps. Goldsworthy continues to work in countries such as Japan, Australia, Canada and North America, France, but his home ground of Dumfriesshire in Scotland remains (at) the heart of his work.

    Land Art in Close-Up


    ...

    by William Malpas

    For the land artist, the whole planet is an artist's studio. The land artist ranges over the whole globe. A desert, a beach, a field, a forest becomes a studio, a place of creative activity. This means the very texture and colour and shape and dampness and springiness and strength and size of moss, for instance. Or a stone. Or a crevice in a rock formation. The way the light falls on a patch of grass, the little bits of dead, yellowish grass on top of the newer, green grass. Pine cones, closed-up. Flowers turning sunward in the late afternoon. These are the things land artists deal with in making art. These are the actualities that artists employ when they create artworks.
    This new book contains all of the major land, environmental and earthwork artists of the past 40 years, including James Turrell and his vast volcano site, Hans Haacke's Conceptual art, Michael Heizer's Mid-West earthworks, Robert Smithson and his giant spiral, entropic earthworks, Christo's wrapped buildings and islands, Robert Morris's environments, Walter de Maria's Romantic Lightning Field, David Nash's stoves, stones, trees and North Wales environments, Hamish Fulton's walks and words, Dennis Oppenheim's concentric snow circles, Richard Long and his art of walking, Andy Goldsworthy's natural, spontaneous, eco-friendly sculptures, Alice Aycock's mysterious underground mazes, Mary Miss's sunken pools and pavilions, Wolfgang Laib's delicate, luminous pollen spreads, Nancy Holt and her observation sculptures and the enigmatic floor sculptures of Carl Andre. Here are towers, stars, stones, pools, tunnels, pipes,maps, chasms, ladders, mounds, scars, mirrors, cones, furrows, mazes, circles, hills and gardens.

    Frank Stella in Close-Up

    ...

    by James Pearson

    An in-depth exploration of the American abstract painter. Born in 1936, Stella went on to become among America’s premier contemporary artists. Unlike many 20th century artists, Stella has always worked in abstraction. His art is irrepressible, daring, hugely enjoyable, and refreshingly angst-free.
    This book begins with the celebrated Black Paintings of 1959, moves on through the Minimalist Copper and Aluminium paintings of the early Sixties, to the exuberant Protractor series, the expansion into three dimensions in the 1970s, and closing with the 3-dimensional Polish Village, Exotic Birds and Brazilian ‘maximalist’ works of the 1980s and 1990s.
    Employing the most up-to-date art criticism of Frank Stella, Pearson also looks at Stella’s contemporaries: Johns, Rauschenberg, Noland, Olitski, Louis, Ryman, Marden, Rothko and Newman among others.

    Mark Rothko in Close-Up

    ...

    by Julia Davis

    This new book surveys all of the work of the celebrated American painter Mark Rothko up close.
    Taking in every period of Rothko’s artistic career, from the early post-Surrealist figurative works, the ‘multiform’, cloud-like paintings of the Forties and Fifties, to the mature works: the big commissions and murals series and the ‘Rothko Chapels’ in Houston, Harvard and the Tate Gallery, London. Finally, to the late grey, brown and black works of the Sixties.
    Juila Davis sites Rothko within modern art - Surrealism, Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, colourfield, post-painterly abstraction and Minimalism - and beside his contemporary artists: Newman, de Kooning, Gottlieb, Pollock, Still, Avery, Motherwell, Johns and Stella.

    Maurice Sendak in Close-Up

    ...

    by L.M. Poole

    Just about the best children’s book author and illustrator of recent times, if not the most significant, Maurice Sendak ranks alongside Dr Seuss (Theodore Geisel) as one of America’s biggest talents in the world of children’s picture books. Now he’s having the Hollywood blockbuster treatment, with the release of Where the Wild Are, it’s a good time to reappraise the art of this astonishingly inventive book artist.
    And it’s not only Maurice Sendak that Hollywood is turning to in its hunt for more children’s fantasy literature: two huge recent movies, The Grinch and The Cat in the Hat, are based on Dr Seuss - and there’s Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, of course (with C.S. Lewis’s Narnia series on the way).
