Robert Rauschenberg : breaking boundaries by Robert Saltonstall Mattison( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Rauschenberg is one of the most prolific and best-known artists of the post-war period, whose work, ranging across a number of disciplines, has influenced avant-garde art since the 1950s. Rauschenberg has allowed Robert Mattison into his studio to observe the artist at work and this resulting book examines selected projects in depth so that the meaning of his art, his working procedures, and the reasons behind his various artistic choices may be better understood." "The book covers the influence of urbanism on Rauschenberg's Combine paintings of the 1950s and explores his involvement with the "space race" during the 1960s and 1970s, relating his works to popular culture and demonstrating the development of his ideas about the peaceful exploration of space. Mattison examines Rauschenberg's extensive involvement in the performing arts, tracing his connections to avant-garde dance in America, addressing his own performances, and focusing on his work with the well-known choreographer Trisha Brown. The final chapter examines Rauschenberg's most extensive artistic undertaking, the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange (ROCI). One venue of this seven-year and eleven-country project was Chile, which Rauschenberg visited while the country was under the rule of dictator Augusto Pinochet. The author shows how in dangerous political circumstances Rauschenberg was able to execute and exhibit works critical of the government." "Lavishly illustrated with Rauschenberg's works and photographs of the artist in performance and in the studio, the mixture of the visual arts, politics, technology, dance, and urban theory - among other issues - covered in this study recommends it to a wide audience and speaks to the multidisciplinary scholarship of our era."--Jacket

In Arcadia : paintings by Bill Scott by Bill Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of Bill Scott reveal the miraculous duality of appearing spontaneous and energized, while simultaneously revealing a deep and thoughtful complexity. With this, the fifth exhibition organized by the gallery, Scott's oeuvre continues to evolve as his creative impulses remain fresh, and vital. Comprised of twenty paintings, one of the most striking themes of this show is Scott's presentation of “remembered feelings,” observations and memories drawn from nature, from objects in his studio and outside his window, and from his highly personal response to painter of the past.Instead of directing a painting where to go, Scott allows himself to be directed by brushwork, application of color, and line. During this process he begins to recognize elements that return him to a specific feeling or moment. The white form and undulating lines in Kimura's Garden (2013), for example, recall Chuta Kimura's Garden at Clos-Saint-Pierre (1984, The Phillips Collection), a work which the artist viewed in an exhibition at the museum in 1987. However, it was not until completion that Scott saw this connection. His sensual palette and intricate compositions elicit an uplifting effect in the viewer-his work is an affirmation of color, of the act of painting, and of an intricacy of forms that immediately draw the observer into his radiant visual world. In two rich, vibrant paintings, Dream Flowers (2013) and Predilection for Spring (2012), the dynamic shapes and bold colors resemble nothing to that of an actual landscape. However, this cheerful moment is preserved, whereas in a living garden it would otherwise be fragile or fleeting. These new paintings also show an authoritative, mature hand-the artist's foray into a forceful, assertive style with vigorous brushwork that evokes power, gesture and a new dynamism."
