Frank Bowling by Mel Gooding( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive monograph on the art of Frank Bowling. Mel Gooding explores Bowling's unique and virtuosic abstract style, his gorgeous use of color, and establishes him as one of the finest artists of his generation in a book that spans his entire 40-year career. Born in Guyana in 1936, Bowling arrived in England in his late teens, studied at the Royal College of Art alongside David Hockney, and by the early 1960s had established himself as an original force in the vibrant London art scene. A move to New York exposed Bowling to his American contemporaries and his work was shown in the 1971 Whitney Biennial. Today, Bowling shows regularly at major galleries and museums worldwide, and his work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Tate in London."
Frank Bowling : mappa mundi( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring numerous works and rarely seen large-scale paintings from Frank Bowling's sweeping 60-year career, this book highlights the artist's magnificent use of sensuous color and rich texture in pictures that are at once absorbing and tactile. When they were first exhibited in the late 1960s, Frank Bowling's immense "map paintings" were widely celebrated for their vibrant color and subtle modulation of the painted surface. These works, like many in Bowling's oeuvre, draw on the principle of mapping to create a kind of mental geography, woven throughout with personal and historic imagery. This collection of paintings from throughout Bowling's career features exquisite reproductions that illuminate his experiments with material and the paintings' wide range of pictorial possibilities. Accompanied by an extensive curatorial survey, art historical contributions, prose poem, biographical visual essay, as well as the collected writings and correspondence of the artist, this book offers an in depth exploration of Bowling's career and aspects of his journey from his home in Guyana to London and New York. It also highlights references to the natural world and his use of classical and literary symbolism. This book creates a true mappa mundi--an evolving map of Bowling's inner and physical worlds
