Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Rothenberg's austere yet psychologically charged depictions of horses, painted in the 1970s, are justly celebrated. More problematic are her abstract figures of the 1980s and early 1990s, a melange of animals, surreal landscapes, frenetic dancers and jugglers, hybrid human-animal figures and contorted torsos. This handsomely illustrated catalog of a traveling exhibit which opened at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, N.Y., surveys the artist's entire career. Auping, the gallery's chief curator, sees Rothenberg's more recent work as a psychobiography, a search for the bare essentials of self. He suggestively likens her approach to that of Willem de Kooning in her oscillation between meditating on the figure and mutilating it. Nearly 30 drawings are included, which enable readers to track her image-making process. In a 1991 interview conducted in her New Mexico studio, Rothenberg explains how her encounters with light, space and red earth help her ``tap the angst'' within. (Feb.)
Library Journal
Based on a traveling exhibit, this book surveys the artist's evolving themes and techniques in works produced between 1974 and 1992. Particular attention is paid to Rothenberg's varied horse images of the 1970s. The main essay discusses the artist's ``intense and powerful psychobiography,'' while comparing the work to such modern artists as de Kooning, Pollock, and Rothko. Auping , chief curator at the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York, also conducts a wide-ranging interview with Rothenberg, seeking--with limited success--explanations of her sometimes cryptic and disturbing images. A list of major exhibitions is included. While a more critical tone might have been helpful, this is recommended for major collections on modern American art.-- Stephen Rees, Bucks Cty. Free Lib., Levittown, Pa.
