Название: Faile: Works on Wood: Process, Paintings and Sculpture ISBN: 3899555473 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783899555479 Издательство: Gestalten Цена: 3872 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: Together, Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller are Faile. Although their art has its roots on the street, their work clearly demonstrates that street art no longer solely belongs there. What began on city walls and asphalt is now shown, with much success, in galleries and museums and can be found in living rooms and on everyday objects. In their numerous projects, activities, exhibitions, and images, Faile show how much fun art can be and how much fun they have making it. Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller have been working with wood since they founded Faile in 1999. Now, Faile: Works on Wood showcases their exploration of wood as an integral material in their practice from past to present. The book follows Gestalten s two bestsellers Faile: Prints + Originals 1999 2009 and Faile Temple. Faile: Works on Wood presents a -compelling spectrum of projects and -craftsmanship that plays with the diversity of wood in terms of its uses and look and feel from early street art using salvaged material to more recent projects using apple boxes as well as their towering installation at the New York City Ballet. The book introduces their Faile Puzzle Boxes, each of which contains 88 wooden blocks painted on six sides that can be moved and turned to create countless visual possibilities. It also includes their sculptural, carved Prayer Wheels, which are engineered to spin in place while people meditate to their favorite Faile images. Featuring beautiful color reproductions and several new essays on their practice, Faile: Works on Wood takes readers on a journey of discovery through the artists work with this medium. In the process, the book shows that street art is not a momentary trend, but rather an independent art form.
Название: Neo Rauch: Selected Works 1993-2012 ISBN: 377573516X ISBN-13(EAN): 9783775735162 Издательство: Hatje Cantz Цена: 3071 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: Almost singlehandedly, Leipzig school painter Neo Rauch has renewed the possibilities of allegory, politics and surrealism in contemporary painting. His epic canvases, with their disjunct components, resemble collages as much as painting, populated with characters seemingly plucked from momentous historical occasions--protestors, eminent-looking statesmen, soldiers, workers--as well as ordinary people engaged in bizarre, enigmatic actions of no apparent political/historical consequence whatsoever. The protagonists of these works, surrounded by floating symbols, abstract blobs and fragments of buildings and interiors, collide as if in some grand trans-historical continuum in which all eras come together. Realized in loud, garish hues partly informed by the artist's early exposure to Socialist Realism, Rauch's enigmatic pictorial narratives never vanish into explanation: "My paintings have something vital about them, like an animal, a living thing," he says. "You don't have to understand them, just to feel that this creation, to the greatest possible extent, is at peace with itself." Following major solo exhibitions in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (2007), the Pinakothek in Munich (2010) and the Leipzig Museum of Art (2010), this new major Rauch monograph accompanies an exhibition at Bozar Expo in Brussels, and provides the most up-to-date overview of his accomplishment. The best-known exponent of the Leipzig school of painting, Neo Rauch (born 1960) was born, reared and trained as an artist in Leipzig, where he continues to live. In August 2005, Rauch was awarded the chair of painting at Leipzig University. In 2010, he received a major museum retrospective, held jointly at the Leipzig Museum of Art and the Pinakothek. In 2011, a selection of the works from this retrospective then traveled to the Zach?eta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw, Poland.

Deciphering allegories in the complex, fantastical works of Hieronymus Bosch.
In the midst of the realist-leaning artistic climate of the Late Gothic and Early Renaissance, Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450 1516) was more than an anomaly. Bosch s paintings are populated with grotesque scenes of fantastical creatures succumbing to all manner of human desire, fantasy, and angst. One of his greatest inventions was to take the figural and scenic representations known as drolleries, which use the monstrous and the grotesque to illustrate sin and evil, and to transfer them from the marginalia of illuminated manuscripts into large-format panel paintings. Alongside traditional hybrids of man and beast, such as centaurs, and mythological creatures such as unicorns, devils, dragons, and griffins, we also encounter countless mixed creatures freely invented by the artist. Many subsidiary scenes illustrate proverbs and figures of speech in common use in Bosch s day. In his Temptation of St Anthony triptych, for example, the artist shows a messenger devil wearing ice skates, evoking the popular expression that the world was skating on ice meaning it had gone astray. In his pictorial translation of proverbs, in particular, Bosch was very much an innovator.
Bosch whose real name was Jheronimus van Aken was widely copied and imitated: the number of surviving works by Bosch s followers exceeds the master s own production by more than tenfold. Today only 20 paintings and eight drawings are confidently assigned to Bosch s oeuvre. He continues to be seen as a visionary, a portrayer of dreams and nightmares, and the painter par excellence of hell and its demons.
Featuring brand new photography of recently restored paintings, this exhaustive book, published in view of the upcoming 500th anniversary of Bosch s death, covers the artist s complete works. Discover Bosch s pictorial inventions in splendid reproductions with copious details and a huge fold-out spread, over 110 cm (43 in.) long, of The Garden of Earthly Delights. Art historian and acknowledged Bosch expert Stefan Fischer examines just what it was about Bosch and his painting that proved so immensely influential.

Автор: Hayon, Jaime Название: Jaime Hayon works ISBN: 3899552075 ISBN-13(EAN): 9783899552072 Издательство: Gestalten Цена: 6151 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: The Spanish designer and artist Jaime Hayon is a rising star in the international creative scene. It s safe to say that he will be one of the most influential designers in the years to come. Hayon embodies a new type of creative Renaissance man, who thanks to his interdisciplinary approach and extraordinary talent can realize his unique stylistic language across various areas and media. Whether he is creating interior design, furniture, illustration, tableware or decorative vases and ceramics, Hayon s signature style always shines through. Seemingly without effort, his designs coherently bring together diametrical opposites such as opulence and practicality, sensuality and precision as well as finesse and restraint. This first monograph about Jaime Hayon presents the full spectrum of his work. The book features projects such as his extensive ceramic installation for Bisazza in Milan and the interior design for La Terraza del Casino, an exclusive restaurant in central Madrid, as well as designer toys and furniture, including his award-winning bathroom collection, AQHayon. Ranging from clear and harmonious to playfully extravagant, all of the examples attest to his inimitable grasp of form, style and colour. In addition to his impressive body of work, which also includes his collaborations with international clients such as Camper, Swarovski and Lladro, the book contains previously unreleased personal sketches, illustrations and productions of new projects that will make its world premiere debut at the annual Milan Furniture Fair in April 2008. Documented by the photographer Nienke Klunder, these previously unpublished works have been exclusively created for Jaime Hayon Works and show facets of Hayon s talent that are revealed here for the first time.
