About this title

Synopsis:

Craftsman House [Published date: 1999]. Hard cover, 208 pp. [Excerpt from jacket flap]. Southern California, although known worldwide through the media of news and entertainment, has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Los Angeles is the heart and soul of Southern California, and epitomizes the strange mix of stunning light, fast-paced freeways, and exhilarating art that can be found nowhere else in the world. LA is arguably one of the most important cities in the world for art, and the artists who live there frequently defy the conventional categorization that is commonplace in other locations of cutting-edge contemporary art. Painters, sculptors, printmakers, and photographers can be found in their thousands, but there are also performance artists, installation artists, and mixed-media artists. This book delves into the influences and forces that have shaped this region since the early 1980s, and introduces the reader to both internationally recognized and lesser known but, perhaps, no less important - artists and their art. It is an indispensable guide and reference for anyone interested in knowing more about the key players in one of the world's most significant art markets.
