Synopsis:

June Wayne is widely acknowledged to have significantly influenced the art of the modern print.  Her own lithographs demonstrate how the printed image can evoke a depth and expressive power equal to painting, and her founding and directing the Tamarind Lithography Workshop have made her innovative approaches available to artists and printers worldwide.

But Wayne’s artistic accomplishments exceed her role as “the incontestable pioneer of contemporary lithography.” Throughout her career, she has boldly explored a variety of media and aesthetic concepts in painting, tapestry, film, and video, always pushing the limits of her media to create suitable vehicles for her philosophical and emotional content.  Her themes are as varied and advanced as her methods, evolving from astrophysics and metaphysics, genetic and personal history, fables and feminist theory.

While her earliest images were rooted in first social realism and then surrealism, within a decade she had defined an independent course for herself that ranged far and wide over the next sixty years, exploring both micro- and macrocosmic realms while never losing contact with her direct experience of the present human condition.  Most recently, she addressed another aspect of this experience, the visual impact of organized religion in her neighborhood, and used digital imaging and printing techniques.

Now, for the first time, the astounding range of Wayne’s art is available in one comprehensive volume. Bringing together more than 475 examples of her paintings, prints, tapestries, drawings, films, and writings, this definitive catalogue provides a balanced look at Wayne’s long and varied career. Two essays, one by Robert P. Conway and the other by Arthur C. Danto, offer scholarly commentary on individual works and address questions of interpretation and significance. Much of the commentary on the images, however, is provided in Wayne’s own words, offering rare personal insights.

About the Author: Arthur C. Danto is Emeritus Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University and art critic for the Nation.

Book Description Rutgers University Press, United States, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since her first solo exhibition in 1935 at the age of seventeen, June Wayne has achieved legendary status among twentieth-century American artists. Best known today for her work in and influence on printmaking and fine-art lithography, one of her most renowned achievements was the founding of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in 1959. Under her direction, this workshop became one of the most important focal points of a general revival of printmaking in the United States - a revival that gave many other famous artists, including Willem de Kooning, Louise Nevelson, and Ed Ruscha, an opportunity to experiment in this format. Her own spectacular prints earned her the estimable title the incontestable pioneer of contemporary lithography. But Wayne s artistic accomplishments are even richer than that. Throughout her career, she boldly explored a variety of media and aesthetic concepts. She worked in painting, tapestry, film, and video, always pushing the limits of the media to develop new techniques. She created optical art long before it had a name and adapted Ben Day dots decades ahead of Pop Art. By the time these styles moved into the mainstream, Wayne was exploring new ideas and forms. The themes of her art are as varied as her styles and methods. Working from such wide-ranging influences as science, space exploration, literature, personal experience, and feminist theory, her work is always among the most exciting, contemporary, and original being produced. Now, for the first time, the astounding range of Wayne s art is available in one comprehensive volume. Bringing together more than 600 examples of her paintings, prints, tapestries, drawings, films, and writings, this beautifully produced catalogue provides a balanced look at Wayne s long and varied career. Two essays, one by Robert P. Conway and the other by Arthur C. Danto, offer scholarly commentary on individual works and address questions of interpretation and significance. Much of the description about the images, however, is provided in Wayne s own words, offering rare personal insights. A deserved tribute to a self-made woman who became one of the twentieth century s most influential artists, this catalogue stands on its own as a comprehensive look at the scope of Wayne s art, while also serving as a supplement to a traveling exhibition scheduled for several venues in 2006-2007.
