The art of Bill Viola by Chris Townsend( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a world where an artist's importance is often conferred by small groups of experts and cognoscenti, Bill Viola's rich imagery touches a nerve with large international audiences. His work never shies away from making big statements about human life and its relation to the universe, to the soul and human spirit, to nature and to death. He is one of those rare artists whose work makes us aware of our nature as human beings, taking art back to what were once its fundamental concerns and giving it a relevance to the emotional and spiritual lives of ordinary people

"A pioneer of video art in the 1970s, Bill Viola has spent three decades creating evocative motion-picture and sound installations. This program gets inside his creative process, recording his reflections on his life and work. Exploring his childhood, his struggles as a student, and his feelings about his mother's death, the program focuses on Viola's intuitive sensibility and his approach to universal human experiences. His recollections of nearly drowning as a boy, and his statements on childbirth and its resonance in Medieval and Renaissance art, underscore the spirituality and scope of his vision. Also included is the bonus feature Bill Viola and the Making of Emergence, used with permission, (c) J. Paul Getty Trust."--Website
Bill Viola by John G Hanhardt( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bill Viola began producing video works in the early 1970s and since then has captivated audiences with his poignant and beautifully wrought interpretations of human experience. Viola has explored the possibilities of electronic, visual, and sound practices throughout his career and is today one of the most celebrated proponents of video art. This is the first monograph to chart Viola’s career in full, covering his education in New York, his earliest major films, his retrospective at the Whitney Museum in 1997, and his recent installations in Venice, New York, Tokyo, London, and Berlin. Renowned curator and specialist in video art John Hanhardt outlines the key visual, literary, and spiritual influences in Viola’s work and his changing approach to the medium of film as its technology advances. Woven into the discussion are illustrations of Viola’s most significant works, including Information (1973), The Passing (1991), The Greeting (1995), Going Forth by Day (2002), and Martyrs, the 2014 film commissioned for St Paul’s Cathedral in London, as well as reproductions of Viola’s sketches and notebooks that bring his working process to life.--Publisher website

Bill Viola : reflections( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American artist Bill Viola (born 1951) is one of the most renowned video artists in the world, a major figure standing somewhat apart from others whose artistic expression is enabled by - and inseparable from - New Media technology. This book is published to coincide with an exhibition at Villa Panza in Varese, Italy of selected works produced between the late 1970s and 2008, works chosen to exemplify Viola's central preoccupation with human consciousness and experience, as well as his interest in mysticism and symbolism, from both East and West. Viola's relative eschewal of computer editing and use of extreme slow motion imbue his video installations with almost painterly qualities.0Exhibition: Villa Panza, Varese, Italy (12.03.-28.10.2012)

Bill Viola [exposition], Paris, Grand Palais, Galeries nationales, 5 mars-21 juillet 2014 by Bill Viola( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Génie de l'art vidéo, Bill Viola a construit tout son oeuvre autour de la perception sensorielle de la condition humaine. De la naissance à la mort, il interroge le temps, la conscience, le souffle, et les trempe aux sources des grands mystiques, en écho à Bosch ou à Giotto. La métaphysique qu'il donne à vivre peint la solitude, le vieillissement ou le rapport à l'autre. Bill Viola nous raconte. À l'occasion de la première rétrospective que la France consacre à cet immense artiste américain, le Grand Palais vous tend ce livre miroir. C'est un catalogue interactif, un livre, à voir et à entendre, pour se connaître soi-même."--Page 4 of cover
