Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 80 pages. Published in 2000. Landmark retrospective collection of the artist's photographically-based paintings. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Holly Roberts and Chris Pichler: Oversize-volume format. Pale gray cloth boards with art reproduction pasted on the cover and black titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Art by Holly Roberts. Introduction by T. D. Moley-Martinez. Essays by Robert H. Wilson and Steve Yates. Notes on the Plates and brief Biography appended at the end. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Holly Roberts Works 1989-1999". The artist/photographer's work over the last decade. Holly Roberts begins with a photograph and then proceeds gradually to efface it by turning it into magical paintings, drawings, and mixed-media art that are powerful not just because they evoke the elemental power of art itself (now missing in most contemporary painting), but also because every image is "dreaming out loud". "She found that by painting over a photographic surface, she was able to manipulate the paint (scrape it, scratch it, even wipe it away) with the luxury of never losing the underlying image. A modern pioneer of the method, Roberts ups the ante with an understanding of human dynamics and a technique that appears unstudied" (Publisher's blurb). While Holly Roberts's lapidary skills are masterly and make one think of "craft", her works are psychic projections, profoundly personal and indelible works of art. An absolute "must-have" title for Holly Roberts collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by Holly Roberts. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art and photography classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the first and only edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 60 color plates. One of the finest living American artists. A fine copy. ISBN 3923922841. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Nazraeli Press, Tucson, Arizona, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. First edition, first and only printing. Hardcover. Cloth, with tipped-in color plate and debossed title on cover, no dust jacket as issued. Introduction by T.D. Mobley-Martinez and essays by Robert Wilson and Steve Yates. 80 pp. with 60 four-color plates and 3 black and white and color reference illustrations. 11-3/4 x 9-1/2 inches. Out of print. New in publisher's shrink-wrap. From the publisher: "Roberts' odyssey with the painted photograph began in the mid-1970s. She found that painting over a slick photographic surface, she was able to manipulate the paint -- scrape it, scratch it, even wipe it away -- with the luxury of never losing the underlying image. A modern pioneer of the method, Roberts ups the ante with an understanding of human dynamics just short of psychic and a technique that appears unstudied, but is in fact, quietly accomplished. The combination results in a deeply resonant imagemaking, both haunting and profound.". Bookseller Inventory # 108524
