Homage to the square : Josef Albers by Josef Albers( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Influential teacher, writer, painter and color theorist Josef Albers was the first Bauhaus student to be asked to join the faculty. By 1933, when the Nazis forced the school to close, Albers had become one of its best-known artists and teachers. Having migrated with his wife Anni to the U.S., where he taught at Black Mountain College and at Yale, Albers began to experiment with the optical effects of simple color combinations. The experimentation blossomed into a lifelong obsession that would culminate in his best-known series of paintings, Homage to the Square, in which he painted several differently-colored squares within larger squares in order to illustrate his theory that alterations in environment, shape and light would produce changes in color. This edition contains impeccable reproductions of Albers' famous series, which beautifully illustrate the artist's primary thesis, that the discrepancy between visual information received by the retina and what the mind perceives proves that this information is not intrinsic to color itself, but is dependent on its relationship with its surroundings and his influence on Luis Barragán, the noted Mexican architect
Humberto Spíndola : interventions in the architecture of Luis Barragán by Humberto Spíndola( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humberto Spíndola proposes intervening in the architecture of Luis Barragán with his installations fashioned from traditional Mexican colored tissue paper, known as papel de china or papel picado. The installations seek to reconstitute the dialogue between the painter Jesús Reyes Ferreira, who gave his palette of colors to the work of Luis Barragán, and the architecture of the Mexican master. The author suggests that this dialogue, which resulted in Barragán's use of color in his architecture, was based on the use of tissue paper, the material on which Chucho Reyes painted his extensive oeuvre. In his unusual work, Spíndola approaches tissue paper through the traditional Mexican handicraft techniques employed in the creation of decorative paper and piatas, using noble, acid- and pigment-free materials of more recent manufacture. This book is the catalogue of the exhibition of Humberto Spíndola's interventions in the Casa Luis Barragán and other houses designed by the architect. It contains essays on Spíndola's work by distinguished art and architecture critics Jorge Alberto Manrique, Lily Kassner, and Miquel Adrià. In the six works created for this occasion, the lightness, color, and mobility of tissue paper interact with the light, airiness, and spaciousness of Barragán's architecture. In a contemporary dialogue, Spíndola has drawn on his academic training in the social sciences to widen his historical research into Mexico paper crafts, seeing the relationship between Chucho Reyes and Barragán as part of a larger history of paper and architecture, from pre-Hispanic amate paper to the minimalism of Barragán
