In recent years, abstract painting has developed a rich complexity that, now more than ever, rewards intensive viewing; this authoritative book guides the reader through the key issues in the field. Painting Abstraction profiles 80 of today?s most vital contemporary abstract painters, such as Mark Grotjahn and Amy Sillman, featuring large full-color reproductions of their work and incisive texts by author and curator Bob Nickas. The product of years of research and countless studio visits, Painting Abstraction is a major statement on the last five years of this exciting new wave of creativity in painting.

Review:

"Lively survey?a useful tool in forming a sharper, broader sense of what is going on in the world of abstract painting."
–Roberta Smith, The New York Times

"Pictorially jazzy work?the visual energy and variety of these reproductions burst all pigeonholes. It's a wild ride of a reference book."
San Francisco Chronicle
