9781904832584: Existed: Leonardo Drew

Throughout his career, Leonardo Drew has been continuously engaged with the cyclical nature of existence. Made to resemble the detritus of everyday life, his formally abstract but emotionally charged compositions have a metaphorical weight that is as unique as it is symbolic. Often interpreted as a comment on the position of African-Americans in contemporary American society, his work transcends any specific historic and ethnic reference, and is deeply embedded in the theory and practice of mid-20th-century abstraction. Ranging from the intense drama of his sculptures and installations of the 1980s, to the epic sweep of his massive wall-bound tableaux in the 1990s, to the ethereal language of his paper casts of the early 2000s, his works transcend time and place. Add the poetic intimacy of his recent works on paper, and Drew’s practice can be described as a journey toward enlightenment, full of reprises and returns as well as new beginnings.

Book Description D Giles Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. 307 x 236 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Throughout his career, Drew s formally abstract but emotionally charged compositions, made to resemble the detritus of everyday life, have combined qualities of painting and sculpture. Transcending any specific historic and ethnic reference his work has a unique aesthetic authority that is deeply embedded in the theory and practice of mid-20th-century abstraction. In 2004 Drew began to create sculptures using paper replicas of his collection of cast-off items to create a new visual poetry of lightness and simplicity, culminating most recently in his installation Number 123 (2006). This brand new volume, and accompanying exhibition, studies these recent developments, and presents a new installation conceived for the exhibition, Drew s grandest and most ambitious piece to date. Over 90 selected paintings realized between 1991 and 2005, and recent works on paper made between 2005 and 2008, offer a representative survey of Drew s artistic development and the new direction of his work.
