Candida HA¶fer creates meticulously composed images of public and institutional spaces marked with the richness of human activity, yet largely devoid of human presence Whether a photograph of a national library or a lounge at Volkswagen's headquarters, HA¶fer's images ask us to conduct distanced, disengaged examinations through the windows оваде she creates The collected images present a universe wholly constructed by human intention, unearthing patterns of order and logic imposed on these spaces by their absent creators and inhabitants The Architecture of Absence examines HA¶fer's oeuvre and its relationship to the work of other noted students of renowned professors Bernd and Hilla Becher An exhibition of this work will open at the University Art Museum at California State University, Long Beach in January 2005, and travel to the co-organizing museum, the Norton Museum in Florida, among other venues. 2004 г Твердый переплет, 112 стр ISBN 1931788480.
In this penetrating and daring biography of Paul Gauguin, Nancy Mowll Mathews traces the themes of sex and violence through the artist's life, from the near-murderous quarrels of his grandparents, to his abusive treatment of his wife, to his sexual encounters in French Polynesia in the 1890s She examines how Gauguin used these complex themes in овадм his art and writings and how he carefully presented his "erotic life" in the autobiographical treatises Noa Noa (1893) and "Avant et apres" (1903) The central drama of Gauguin's adulthood - his marriage to Mette Gad - is assessed in detail, and with the inclusion of some of Mette's previously unpublished letters, both sides of the Gauguin marriage are presented for the first time Besides providing fascinating new insights into Gauguin's relationships with men and women and the roles that sexuality and aggression played in shaping his art, Mathews illuminates his homosocial, if not homoerotic, relationships with Vincent van Gogh, Emile Schuffenecker, and Charles Filiger Gauguin's genius resided not only in his forging of new artistic paths, Mathews concludes, but also in his ability to bring his sexual fantasies alive for a large audience Формат издания: 18,5 см х 26 см Иллюстрации Автор Nancy Mowll Mathews.
