Lee Bontecou : a retrospective by Lee Bontecou( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading figures in late twentieth-century art, Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known for her sculptures in welded steel and canvas, as well as epoxy and plastic, from the 1960s and 1970s. These powerful and original objects, which have been both critically acclaimed and actively collected, incorporate a variety of figurative, organic, and mechanistic references, suggesting states of transformation between the natural and the man-made, order and chaos, delicacy and ferocity." "This monograph presents reproductions of more than fifty sculptures and one hundred drawings, including her celebrated early works as well as later pieces that are little known and have never been publicly exhibited or published. Along with original essays by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Robert Storr, Mona Hadler, and Donna De Salvo, this volume also includes a reprint of Donald Judd's influential 1965 Arts Magazine article on Bontecou."--Jacket

"Lee Bontecou (born 1931) established a significant reputation in the 1960s with pioneering sculptures and reliefs made of raw and expressionistic materials. Her art is simultaneously organic and mechanical, and infused with biological, geological, and technological motifs. These same qualities also animate a less-known but compelling body of work: her drawings. Ranging from her early soot on paper works created using powder from a welding torch to recent drawings in pencil and colored pencil that evoke cosmoses and microcosmic worlds, this stunning book is the first retrospective survey of Bontecou's consistently innovative drawings. More than sixty full-color plates, populated by imagery ranging from black voids to mechanomorphs to hybrid descendants of teeth, plants, and fish, are complemented by original essays from leading scholars who explore themes such as the drawings' historical contexts, Bontecou's use of the iconography of the void, and the eco-apocalyptic themes of an artist who came of age in the roiling political atmosphere of the 1960s"--Amazon.com, viewed April 10, 2014
