Overview

This book is the first to catalogue in one volume all of abstract artist Brice Marden's work From the 1990s, and includes, unlike other publications on the artist, marvelous large details of the pieces, which give the reader a better perspective of what the works are like in actual size. Marden's alternately fluid and tensile abstractions and patterned motifs represent a lifetime's worth of thought about art. The book is published to accompany a major travelling exhibition on Marden's work organized by the Dallas Museum of Art.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
After 20 years of exploring the possibilities of large, flat panels of color, Brice Marden felt so exhausted as an artist that he considered giving up painting altogether. His interest was rekindled by a superb exhibition of Asian calligraphy. Completely changing his method of working, he started to explore the enormous complexity of line as a method of artistic expression. Marsden drew on a close study of Chinese calligraphy and a deep interest in Greek mythology to create a vibrant and spontaneous way of working that fuses a subtle command of color with a striking pattern of looping lines, freely painted. This catalog pairs a clear explanatory text with excellent color reproductions of 43 of his works, creating an excellent introduction to the best works of one of the major American painters of the late 20th century.--David McClelland, Philadelphia Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
