Overview

This book is the first comprehensive survey of the work of Los Angeles-based artist Tim Hawkinson (b. 1960), whose ingenious constructions of found objects and everyday items have brought him widespread recognition as one of the most original sculptors working in America today. Accompanying an exhibition opening in February at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Tim Hawkinson provides an in-depth look at this prolific and endlessly creative artist.

Known primarily for his large-scale kinetic and sound-producing works, such as the monumental √úberorgan, Hawkinson has also created a bird skeleton from his own fingernail parings, a latex cast of his body inflated with air, and clocks fashioned from a Coke can, a manila envelope, and a toothpaste tube. His fantastical assemblages, which may include sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, or printmaking, suggest the profound strangeness of life, matter, and time. With 250 color illustrations and three insightful essays, along with the artist's commentary on more than 150 of his hugely varied works, Tim Hawkinson will prove a revelation to all those interested in contemporary art.

Author Bio: Lawrence Rinder is adjunct curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art and dean of graduate studies at the California College of the Arts, San Francisco. He was the curator of the Whitney's 2002 Biennial, among other exhibitions. Howard N. Fox is curator of modern and contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He has organized numerous major exhibitions, including Avant-Garde in the Eighties and Eleanor Antin. Doug Harvey is an art critic and writer for LA Weekly.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Perusing this eponymous catalog of the exhibition now showing at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) this summer, one must concede that Tim Hawkinson's art has a "great deal on its mind," as Howard N. Fox (curator, LACMA) writes. Indeed, he perhaps has too much on his mind, which may explain Whitney curator Rinder's vague essay pondering the artist's "inexhaustible supply" of inspiration or art critic Doug Harvey's encyclopedia of terms to discuss Hawkinson's oeuvre, ranging from the "as-is aesthetic" to "zirconium, cubic." Only Fox's essay seems to be heading somewhere in examining the artist's metaphysical preoccupations. Hawkinson, who wears his California art-schooling on his sleeve, is as unsettling in his creations as he is unsettled in his materials. Using his own body, latex, glass, spoons, tinfoil, trash, chicken skin, motors, etc., he produces sculptures and drawings that are at once frightening hybrids and fragile organisms. With hundreds of color plates and brief annotations on works by the artist, this book provides the most comprehensive survey of the subject available. It is also a cautionary tale: an artist's vast oeuvre doesn't necessarily yield much meat.-Prudence Peiffer, Cambridge, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
