♥ Book Title : Aesthetic Theory, Abstract Art, and Lawrence Carroll
☯ Full Synopsis : "Boldly developing the central traditions of American modernist abstraction, Lawrence Carroll's paintings engage with a fundamental issue of aesthetic theory, the nature of the medium of painting, in highly original, frequently extraordinarily successful ways. Aesthetic Theory, Abstract Art, and Lawrence Carroll explains how he understands the medium of painting; shows what his art says about the identity of painting as an art; discusses the place of his paintings in the development of abstraction; and, finally, offers an interpretation of his art. The first monograph devoted to him, this philosophical commentary employs the resources of analytic aesthetics. Art historians trace the development of art, explaining how what came earlier yields to what comes later. Taking for granted that the artifacts they describe are artworks, art historians place them within the history of art. Philosophical art writers define art, explain why it has a history and identify its meaning. Pursuing that goal, Aesthetic Theory, Abstract Art, and Lawrence Carroll roams freely across art history, focused at some points on the story of old master painting and sometimes on the history of modernism, but looking also to contemporary art, in order to provide the fullest possible philosophical perspective on Carroll's work."Article| David Carrier| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : I Have Longed to Move Away
☯ Full Synopsis : "Lawrence Carroll (b. 1954) is an Australian-born American artist whose work has been featured in major exhibitions around the world. Born in Melbourne, Carroll moved to California with his family in 1958. Some 25 years later, in 1984, he moved to New York to pursue his artistic development, with little concern for the fashions of the moment but a profound sense of personal commitment and dedication to the language and practice of painting. This book, published to accompany a career-spanning exhibition, provides an overview of Carroll's artistic development from his earliest works to the present day, highlighting the subtle recurring themes as well as the fresh departures that have taken him on wholly new artistic journeys."Article| Gianna A.

♥ Book Title : The Contemporary Art Gallery
☯ Full Synopsis : "Everyone who looks at contemporary art is familiar with galleries. But visual features of these mysterious temples tend to be taken for granted. The basic purpose of this book is to enliven the reader’s latent knowledge of galleries, including architectural motifs, the intended impression that is conveyed to the visitor, and human interactions within them. The contemporary art world system includes artists’ studios, art galleries, homes of collec-tors and public art museums. To comprehend art, one needs to understand these settings and how it travels through them. The contemporary art gallery is a store where luxury goods are sold. What distinguishes it from stores selling other luxuries – upscale clothing, jewelry, and posh cars – is the nature of the merchandise. While much has been written about the art, this book uncovers the secretive culture of the galleries themselves. The gallery is the public site where art is first seen – anyone can come and look for free. This store, a commercial site, is where aesthetic judgments are made. Art’s value is determined in this marketplace by the consensus formed by public opinion, professional re-viewers and sales. The gallery, then, is the nexus of the enigmatic, billion dollar art world, and it is that space that is dissected here. The first chapter briefly describes the beginnings of the present contemporary art gallery. The second presents the experience of gallery going, presenting summary accounts of vis-its to some contemporary galleries. The third expands and extends that analysis, with de-tailed close up descriptions and comparative evaluations of many diverse contemporary galleries, in order to identify the challenges provided by these marvelous places. Then the fourth chapter indicates why, in the near future, due to the proliferation of myriad art fairs and online platforms extant today, such galleries might disappear altogether."Article| David Carrier, Darren Jones| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Giorgio Morandi
☯ Full Synopsis : "This gorgeously produced monograph focuses on the period during which Giorgio Morandi (1890–1964) developed and refined his investigations of serial, reductive and permutational forms and compositions, a body of work that has had a profound influence on 20th-century contemporary art and painting. Included here are four of the ten iconic “yellow cloth paintings,” a series featured prominently in the historic 1998 exhibition at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, and numerous late paintings by the Italian master. Lavishly reproduced, these immersive plates draw attention to the idiosyncratic perspectival and color-driven decisions that give the work its abstract power. In addition to an essay by art historian Laura Mattioli, founder of the Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA), the book includes a fantastic array of contributions by contemporary artists, including John Baldessari, Lawrence Carroll, Vija Celmins, Mark Greenwold, Liu Ye, Alexi Worth and Zeng Fanzhi. Each of the artists offers a personal response to Morandi’s work, and to the 2015 David Zwirner exhibition this book accompanies. Working in different mediums across many disciplines, this diverse list of contributors is a testament to the reach of Morandi’s paintings and their influence on contemporary art."Article| Laura Mattioli| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Beyond Art
☯ Full Synopsis : "Dominic McIver Lopes articulates and defends a 'buck passing theory of art', namely that a work of art is nothing but a work in one of the arts. He argues that none of the theories of art that have dominated philosophy since the 1960s adequately copes with particular puzzle cases of avant-garde art. Whereas these theories have reached a dialectical impasse wherein they reiterate, and cannot resolve, disagreement over the puzzle cases, the buck passing theoryilluminates the radical provocations of avant-garde art, and grounds our empirical inquiries into the arts as well as our practices of appreciation and art criticism. Lopes models the diverse strategiesemployed by humanists and social and behavioural scientists who study the different arts. He gives the specificity of each art form a central role in our appreciative endeavours, and stresses the continuity of the arts with similar, non-art activities such as fashion design, sports, and cuisine."Article| Dominic Lopes| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Nineteenth-Century Philosophy
☯ Full Synopsis : "The second half of the 19th Century saw a revolution in both European politics and philosophy. Philosophical fervour reflected political fervour. Five great critics dominated the European intellectual scene: Ludwig Feuerbach, Karl Marx, Soren Kierkegaard, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Friedrich Nietzsche. "Nineteenth-Century Philosophy" assesses the response of each of these leading figures to Hegelian philosophy - the dominant paradigm of the time - to the shifting political landscape of Europe and the United States, and also to the emerging critique of modernity itself. Both individually and collectively, these thinkers succeeded in revolutionizing theology, philosophy, psychology, and politics. The period also saw the emergence of new schools of thought and new disciplinary thinking. The volume covers the birth of sociology and the social sciences, the development of French spiritualism, the beginning of American pragmatism, the rise of science and mathematics, and the maturation of hermeneutics and phenomenology."Article| Alan D. Schrift, Daniel Conway| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Giorgio Morandi
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book presents an invaluable survey of Giorgio Morandi's drawings, watercolors, and etchings, selected mainly from British and American collections. Morandi was a reserved artist who rarely left his studio in Bologna. He focused his extraordinary artistic sensitivity upon the same motifs again and again, each time depicting them anew. He was a master engraver, and his celebrated etchings - of which there are few - reveal the artist's unmatched ability to express lightness and depth. For Morandi, drawing - as Renato Miracco writes in his introductory essay - represented the first physical manifestation of the idea, a concrete trace of a largely metaphysical quest. This essential volume - the second in the series I Quaderni dell'Istituto italiano di cultura di New York, which began with the works of Fausto Melotti - conveys an atmosphere of meditation and suspended reality, where simple shapes and muted colors reveal a parallel world that the viewer may gently enter."Article| Giorgio Morandi, Karen Wilkin, Renato Miracco| Statement ..."
