About this Item

104 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. TIBET. Mount Kailash in Tibet is the most venerated holy site on earth, the mountain at the center of the world for four religions, the source from which all creation sprung. In 2009 Mazal made a month-long journey to Mount Kailash, and made a kora-a circumambulation of the mountain. Peripheral elements in the local environment fired Mazal's artistic imagination: the mountain itself-a monolith of black and white; boxes of pigment in a local market; and prayer flags with incandescent displays of color, whipping out over the landscape. Since 2003, artist Ricardo Mazal has worked in sequence on three large-scale bodies of work, each centered on a unique burial site. Kora completes this monumental trilogy, Mazal's inspired opus of large-scale paintings and photographs. Throughout his book, these visual elements create a complete and persuasive human and artistic experience. Jon Carver, visual artist, writer, educator and curator, has exhibited internationally, published over 500 art reviews, numerous artists' monographs, and a book on New Mexican sculptors. Henry Shukman's poems have appeared in The New Republic, the Times, and the Guardian in London. Shukman is also the author of the poetry collection In Doctor No's Garden and a novel, The Lost City, both of which won Book of the Year in the Guardian and Times. Shukman makes his home in Santa Fe. 10.5 x 12 in., 33 color plates, 15 photographs. (Key Words: Ricardo Mazal, Tibet, Jon Carver, Art, Sculpture, Henry Shukman, Mount Kailash, Kora-a).

About this title

Synopsis:

Dark Light is the first book on the ceramics of the great Navajo ceramist Christine Nofchissey McHorse and features her award-winning sculptural black series begun in 1998. Authors Clark and Del Vecchio, the two foremost experts on international contemporary ceramics, give respect to the artist’s Native roots while also exploring her art in a mainstream context, a breakthrough in evaluating Indian pottery today. Dark Light refers to the mica-rich clay McHorse uses in her vessels. When fired, the mica glows and shimmers against the black of the reduction-fired surfaces, advancing and receding, giving McHorse’s elegant, matt-black biomorphic shapes a retinal vibrance and a sensual life.
