Sigmar Polke : works on paper 1963-1974 by Margit Rowell( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sigmar Polke's thirty-five-year career, during which he has produced a vast range of work in all mediums, has earned him a reputation as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Born in 1941, he began his creative output around 1963 in Dusseldorf during a time of enormous social, cultural, and artistic changes in Germany and elsewhere. Few of his works demonstrate more vividly his imagination, sardonic wit, and subversive approach than the drawings, watercolors, and gouaches produced during the 1960s and early 1970s. Embedded in these images are incisive and parodic commentaries on consumer society, the postwar political scene in Germany, and classic artistic conventions." "This book is published to accompany the first American museum exhibition of Polke's drawings from this period, shown at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1999. More than 300 works are illustrated, virtually all of them in color. They include small sketches in ballpoint and felt-tipped pen, larger sheets in watercolor and gouache, and still others stamped with a dot screen process."--Jacket

Sigmar Polke by Gloria Moure( Book )

20 editions published in 2005 in German and English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication was designed and conceived in collaboration with the artist and includes part of his personal documentation. It is also the only publication that includes a critical review of his production of Films. Also there is a very interesting crosscutting issue in the book: the relation of the artist with the Goya painting, Las viejas o el tiempo. The new cover shows Polke photographing this painting in The Beaux Arts Museum in Lille (France). Starting from the profane material of everyday culture, Polke interprets images of reality rather than reality itself, satirizes tendencies in contemporary painting, questions the role of the artist as author, breaks down the trivial visual worlds of media photography, and always, but always, takes off on the most magnificent fights of imagination. The 20_21 Collection focuses on the creative and intellectual approach of key contemporary artists and consists of a series of monographs that examine the interdisciplinary nature of the definition of art and its limits. The collection also provides a forum for the critical consideration of contemporary art practice as a whole. Based on rigorous research, these essays on the oeuvre of an individual artist also look at the context surrounding the work."--Publisher's description

Doug Aitken : 100 yrs by Doug Aitken( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive book to date on the innovative multimedia artist Doug Aitken. Defying definitions of genre, Doug Aitken has explored every medium, from architecture and film to installations and interventions. While Aitken's work varies in both theme and context, his installations share a common thread in their ability to use technology to evoke meaningful personal reactions from the viewer, encourage audience interaction, and inspire communal gatherings. His films often explore themes of displacement and temporality, and through his keen awareness of motion, sound, and color he creates dreamlike landscapes and the futurist aesthetic for which he has become known. This beautifully designed book features visual essays by the artist and surveys his work in all mediums. The monograph is organized thematically into the four most prevalent ideas connected with his work, inspires thought, and will leave readers examining their own relationship to the world around them
