Mark Grotjahn : Circus Circus by Mark Grotjahn( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mark Grotjahn (b. Pasadena, 1968; lives and works in Los Angeles) ranks among the best-known American painters of his generation. His heterogeneous oeuvre includes depictions of anthropomorphic plants and masks as well as colorful abstract compositions in oil or wax crayon. After 1997, he also produced numerous monochromes. Grotjahn’s “Butterfly” and “Face” paintings are animated by a dynamic dialectic between gestural representation and formalist structure. The lavishly designed book “Circus Circus” presents a selection of paintings from Grotjahn’s new “Circus” series as well as a “Mask” bronze sculpture. The ambitious polychromatic works combine the geometric rigor of the “Butterfly” series with the gestural facture of the “Face” pictures, in which primary facial symbols emerge from flowing streams of color. 0The essays by Caroline Käding and Mark Prince analyze the “Circus” series in light of the painterly traditions on which it draws and examine its place in Grotjahn’s oeuvre

Mark Grotjahn : butterfly paintings by Mark Grotjahn( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mark Grotjahn's (born 1968) ongoing Butterfly series--one of several investigations into the natural world in Grotjahn's oeuvre--focuses on perspectival techniques used since the Renaissance, such as dual and multiple vanishing points, to create the illusion of depth on a two-dimensional surface. Though at first the Butterfly paintings may appear entirely formal and graphic (alluding to modernist painting from Russian Constructivism to Op art), the raylike "butterfly wings" are often layered over under-paintings, giving them texture and tonal depth. This volume, published to accompany the first exhibition of Grotjahn's butterfly paintings at Blum & Poe in New York, not only collects these arresting compositions, but also delves into the artistic contexts involved, in an essay by Douglas Fogle that discusses the history of the Butterfly works since their conception in the early 2000s. 0Exhibition: Blum & Poe, New York, U.S.A. (01.05-21.06.2014)
