Charles Joseph Biederman (1906?2004) was a highly influential and iconoclastic American artist and theoretician who influenced the modernist movement both abroad and in the United States. He was particularly drawn to the relationship between nature and art, and wrote extensively on the subject?it became the topic of fourteen books that he published. Deeply engaged in theories of art and nature and art and science, he maintained a nine-year correspondence, eventually published, with the British quantum physicist and philosopher David Bohm. Biederman, Midwesterner by birth, held nature as the ultimate root of art, but insisted upon a wholly abstract translation of the natural into visual elements of color, plane, and form. He worked extensively in the medium of sculptural reliefs created in painted metal to execute his vision of creating pure visual forms; these reliefs became his most sought-after work. Biederman?s work is represented in distinguished collections across the United States and Western Europe, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the Tate, London, among many others. Susan C. Larsen is an art historian and former curator of the Permanent Collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art. This monograph was initiated and researched by Neil Juhl Larsen (1956?2006), a brilliant friend and trusted colleague of the artist.

Book Description Hudson Hills Press Inc.,U.S., United States, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Charles Biederman began his career painting landscapes, still-lifes and self-portraits inspired by the geometry of cubism and geometric abstraction. He was particularly drawn to the relationship between nature and art, and wrote extensively on the subject - it became the topic of 7 books that he published. Deeply engaged in the theories of art and nature and art and science, he maintained correspondence with Nobel-prize winning physicist Bohn, over 9 years. Biederman held nature as the ultimate root of art and insisted upon a wholly abstract translation of the nature into visual elements of colour, plane and form. He discovered metal sculpture reliefs to be how he could convey his vision of creating pure visual forms. In his reliefs small metal forms project from the surface and enliven the monochromatic background planes. Seller Inventory # AAR9781555953355
