9783791352268: Richard Jackson: Ain't Painting A Pain

Since the 1970s, Richard Jackson has dramatically expanded the definition and practice of painting. His career began with large-scale, site-specific wall paintings, room-size painted environments, and monumental stacked canvases. He then developed an astonishing series of painting "machines" to pump, squirt, splatter, and deploy paint in increasingly imaginative, complex and demonstrative ways. This volume documents ten of Jackson’s major installations, two of which are re-creations of previously destroyed early works, together with smaller-scale projects that extend the performative dimensions of painting, merge it with sculpture, and reposition it as an art of everyday experience rather than one of heroic myth. Frequently compared to such European artists as Yves Klein, Lucio Fontana, and Niki de Saint Phalle, Jackson is considered the heir to Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns. This long-overdue book brings together the accomplishments of a provocative artist who has created some of the most daring and important works of his generation.

Book Description Prestel Verlag, 2012. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Neu. Neu Schnelle Lieferung, Kartonverpackung. Abzugsfähige Rechnung. Bei Mehrfachbestellung werden die Versandkosten anteilig erstattet. - Das lang erwartete Buch zu einem der innovativsten und kühnsten amerikanischen Gegenwartskünstler Seit den 1970er Jahren hat Richard Jackson sein Verständnis von Malerei in Theorie und Praxis dramatisch ausgeweitet. Seine Karriere begann mit Wandbildern im Panoramaformat, raumfüllenden gemalten Environments sowie monumentalen Projekten aus Hunderten übereinander gestapelter, bemalter Leinwände. Danach entwickelte er eine Serie von Mal-'Maschinen', die auf fantasievolle Art durch Pumpen, Gießen, Spritzen und Tropfen das Farbmaterial auf der Malfläche verteilten. Der vorliegende Band dokumentiert zehn von Jacksons bedeutendsten Installationen. Unter ihnen befinden sich die Neuschöpfungen von zwei zuvor zerstörten frühen Werken zusammen mit Projekten kleineren Formats, in denen sein höchst innovativer und respektloser Umgang mit dem Action Painting sichtbar wird, das er in performative Dimensionen ausweitet, mit der Bildhauerei vereint und als eine Kunst positioniert, die aus alltäglicher Erfahrung statt aus heroischem Mythos entsteht. 304 pp. Englisch.
