"Richard Deacon has occupied the foreground of British sculpture since the 1980s. His virtuoso constructions in wood or metal range in scale from the domestic to the monumental, their structure recalling both engineering and anatomy. The forms he creates evoke the material world of everyday artefacts and the inner world of the body, as a site of sensuality, memory and language." "The survey by British writer and curator Jon Thompson traces the genealogy of Deacon's work in relation to language; the artist talks with Italian scholar Pier Luigi Tazzi, co-Director of Documenta IX, about the context of space and place; US art critic Peter Schjeldahl reveals the complexities of a single sculpture, Keeping the Faith (1992). Deacon's selected text, by renowned anthropologist Mary Douglas, is on dirt 'as matter out of place'. His own writings are on subjects ranging from Rilke's poetry to the car as public sculpture. This revised and expanded second edition includes over fifty additional pages documenting Deacon's work from 1995 to 2000. Deacon's recent writings - a key text, 'In Praise of Television', and an interview with critic Ian Tromp - accompany an update essay by Penelope Curtis, Curator at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds. Curtis approaches Deacon's recent work through an examination of the links between his drawings and collages and the three-dimensional sculptures. She reveals the continuing experimental nature of Deacon's work, which despite being the subject of international public commissions, resists the formulaic and the monumental."--Jacket

The collected writings of Jon Thompson by Jon Thompson( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume brings together the collected writings of British artist, writer and professor Jon Thompson. As a teacher of artists, Thompson is credited as one of the most influential of his generation. He began writing in the late 1970s, and unlike much of the previous critical writings on academic art history, Thompson's careful research, depth of historical knowledge and insight into an artist's work and approach was quickly recognised as authoritative, fresh and exciting. Thompson taught at Goldsmiths College, London, Middlesex University and Jan van Eyck Academie, The Netherlands, writing influential essays on a wide range of artists including his former students Richard Deacon, Steve McQueen and Mark Wallinger

Art school : Paul Winstanley by Paul Winstanley( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Filled with photographs of unpopulated studios, Paul Winstanley's exploration of British art schools highlights their importance at a time when the art school system's existence is more fraught than ever. In his latest series, Paul Winstanley documents undergraduate studio spaces from over 50 art colleges across the United Kingdom. These rough and ready, nearly neutral spaces are photographed as found: empty between school years. - Publisher's description

Mundos interiores al descubierto by Jon Thompson( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in Spanish and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La muestra reúne 145 piezas organizadas en cinco secciones: paisajes imaginarios y ciudades fantásticas; sueños fantásticos y cuentos de miedo; el cuerpo erótico; rostros y máscaras ; y la seducción del lenguaje. Su propósito es desmontar muchos de los mitos que rodean a los creadores marginales, sacando a la luz las afinidades entre el arte marginal y no marginal y el impacto de outsiders desconocidos en algunos reconocidos artistas del siglo XX, confrontando obras de Antoni Tàpies, Joan Miró o Paul Klee con piezas de artistas marginales como Adolf Wölfli, considerando que unos y otros son las dos caras de la misma tendencia moderna, partícipes de un discurso común que enlaza las artes visuales con las ciencias sociales, incluidas la antropología, la sociología, la psicología y el psicoanálisis
