Abstract:

"This book offers the first comprehensive survey of the art of Richard Stankiewicz (1922-83) and reassesses its place in the art of his time. Stankiewicz's welded sculpture of rusted iron and cast-off steel played an important role in the redefinition of art in New York during the 1950s. Yet, as is the case of several artists who figured significantly in the heady decade when the New York School came to international prominence, the full range of Stankiewicz's art has not been fully appreciated. This publication - accompanying an internationally touring exhibition organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts - provides the first overview of his pioneering "junk sculpture" of the 1950s within the context of the artist's thirty-year career. Although Stankiewicz has been included in important group exhibitions of Assemblage, Neo-Dada, and Abstract Expressionist sculpture, his art has eluded conclusive critical identification." "Following an introduction by Addison Gallery Director Adam D. Weinberg, is an extended critical look at Stankiewicz, his life, and his achievement by Emmie Donadio, who wrote her 1996 doctoral dissertation on the artist. The artist is placed within the twentieth-century European avant-garde tradition in an essay by Jon Wood. Martin Friedman's "Putting It All Together" positions Stankiewicz's work in relation to that of his contemporaries in 1950s New York. The book also includes a narrative chronology, a bibliography, and generous illustrations of key sculptures by the artist."--BOOK JACKET.
