Kuryluk is a Polish-born artist who left her native country in 1981 after matial law was imposed. She draws figures and still lifes on cotton cloth with red felt-tip pen and white acrylic paint. This book, a thorough review of Kuryluk's work over the last ten years, comprises over 100 photographs of her drawings. In her introductory essay, "Christ and Veronica," the artist states her political intent. The other essaysby Kott, Edmund White, and Elzbieta Grabskarefer to the mystic and religious overtones in the work. A good pictorial resource of one artist's work, but limited for other study.Lucy Breslin, Portland, Me.
