Bosco Sodi
The first comprehensive publication on Mexican-born artist Bosco Sodi, whose paintings and sculptures combine preindustrial minimalist and arte povera traditions with elements of Oaxacan and Japanese culture. Sodi has described his creative process as controlled chaos that makes something completely unrepeatable and unique. In his most celebrated body of work, the artist mixes raw pigment with sawdust, wood, pulp, and natural fibers to create the dense surfaces of monochrome paintings. As the layers of material dry, fissured landscapes form without the guidance or intervention of the artist. Sodi's sculptural process reflects traditions of his Mexican heritage. At his studio, Casa Wabi, in Oaxaca, he uses raw earth clay to create kiln-fired cubes, spheres, and bricks. Stacked into columns as minimalist sculpture or assembled as a field or wall, these projects range in scale from architectural installations to earthworks. Sodi also collects solidified volcanic magma from the Ceboruco volcano to make rock sculptures. These fragments are coated in a ceramic glaze and precious metals, uniting geological processes with art-making techniques. This book reflects Sodi's distinct material processes, with essays detailing his relationship to Oaxacan and wabi-sabi aesthetics, as well as his engagement with artistic traditions ranging from minimalism to arte povera to land art.

Zeng Fanzhi Untitled
This is the first monograph dedicated to Zeng Fanzhi's long-acclaimed Abstract Landscape series since its initiation in 2002. This unique book illustrates the complete painting process and development behind a singular work, Zeng Fanzhi's Untitled (2018). Part of the Abstract Landscape series, it was acquired in the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). The volume provides a comprehensive eighteen-year overview of Zeng's painting practices in abstraction, pinpointing the latest changes within the series in particular. It features more than 180 high-resolution images of the painting process, starting from a plain canvas fabric, to the application of layers of paint, down to the meticulous intermingling and layering of different color palettes and strokes, ending in a complex pictorial presentation. As such, it offers the reader an intimate glimpse into how Zeng's abstract art is gradually developed, as if one were in the artist's studio. It presents primary, never-before-seen materials that form an overview of the artist's intriguing painting practice. The book includes essays by Michael Govan and researchers from LACMA, as well as a contribution from Dr. Richard Shiff, who has been researching and analyzing the artist for nearly a decade.

Learn to Paint in Acrylics with 50 More Small Paintings: Pick Up the Skills, Put on the Paint, Hang Up Your Art
Rejoice in this second volume of 50 mini paintings from Mark Daniel Nelson to practice your painting techniques and add to your portfolio of small works. Actively learn all you need to know about acrylic painting as you create these all-new projects following the illustrated step-by-step instructions. Like the first book, the prospect and promise are both exciting and addictive. This book explains a range of painting techniques, including creating complex scenes, varying brush strokes, negative space, rendering multiple planes, reflections on metal, and color and how to use it. Each fun project teaches a different technique and adds another piece of art to your own mini art collection. Projects vary from abstracts and simple color-mixing exercises to figurative subjects-a flower, a sunset, a busy street scene-and many more. These can be mounted, exhibited, collected in a portfolio, or given away as gifts for friends to cherish. Each project adds skills to your repertoire, leaving you primed to dive into more complex theory and practice. If you are coming to acrylics for the first time, or are keen to improve your skills and sometimes daunted by the thought of filling a large empty canvas or blank piece of board, this is your ideal guide. These small paintings will free you from creative hang-ups and replace them with an addictive desire to create that next 5-inch square!

Paul Resika
This new monograph is the most comprehensive book on the work of Paul Resika (b. 1928) to date, highlighting his landscapes, portraits, and still lifes from the 1940s to the present. Resika s most important teacher was Hans Hofmann, with whom he studied on Cape Cod and in New York City in the mid-forties. Resika's subjects are drawn from nature and reflect his surroundings, which change with the seasons: in winter, he lives in New York; in summer, Cape Cod; in spring he spends time painting in the south of France and in Italy. Provincetown piers, fishing boats in the harbor, figures on the beach, and French farmhouses in the countryside emanate a dreamlike serenity and make up the rich visual vocabulary for which Resika is best known. Produced in a large format with more than 220 color illustrations, this book reflects over eight decades of Resika's output, with scholarly essays that reveal his ongoing dialogue with Hofmann's sophisticated ideas about color and pictorial structure.

John Currin: Men
Since raising the ire of the early-1990s arts establishment with his deliberately provocative portrayals of women, John Currin has been best known for his brazen, militantly incorrect female iconography. Yet Currin has represented a range of masculine identities throughout his career as well. This volume is the first to focus exclusively on this aspect of his work, examining the evolution of his equally provocative depictions of men. It ranges from little-known early works on paper and a series of kitschy paintings of men with beards to signature eccentric figures such as the elderly reader in the painting 2070 (2005) and his more baroque genre scenes featuring male couples. Published to accompany the exhibition John Currin: My Life as a Man at the Dallas Contemporary, it offers a revealing new assessment of Currin's pictorial examinations of sexual politics.

Helen Frankenthaler: Sea Change: A Decade of Paintings, 1974-1983
In the summer of 1974, Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011) rented a house at Shippan Point in Stamford, Connecticut, facing the waters of Long Island Sound. This experience marked the beginning of an important period of change for her work, seen in the luminous paintings that are the focus of this volume. Frankenthaler returned regularly to Shippan Point following her initial visit, and the paintings gathered here reflect her responses to the changing appearance of its wide vistas and moving tides. In a new essay for this book, Frankenthaler scholar John Elderfield details the developments that took place in her work as she recorded the effects of these coastal surroundings, whether she was painting at her waterfront home or in her Manhattan studio. Published on the occasion of an exhibition at Gagosian Rome, this book features full-color plates, generous details, and documentary photographs of Frankenthaler in her studio. Showcasing fourteen of Helen Frankenthaler s paintings, dating from 1959 through 1962, and two earlier works on paper, this beautiful book highlights a radical and lesser-known body of works unique within the artist s oeuvre. The book includes color plates of all sixteen works, as well as four single-page and seven double-page spread details. Never before and rarely published documentary photographs appear throughout the book, along with a new and insightful text by John Elderfield. This book accompanies the 2017 exhibition of Frankenthaler s work at Gagosian Paris.

The Art and Technique of Sumi-e: Japanese Ink Painting as taught by Ukai Uchiyama
Japanese Sumi-e brush painting combines the techniques of calligraphy and ink painting to produce compositions of rare beauty. This art has its roots in the Zen Buddhist practices of mindfulness and meditation-serving as a means not just for describing wonders of nature, but as a method for training our minds to view the world in its essential grace and simplicity. This book is the product of many years of study with Ukai Uchiyama-a master Japanese calligrapher and artist. Kay Morrissey Thompson shares the knowledge she gained from this association, presenting a thorough discussion of the artist's work along with a series of practical lessons based on Mr. Uchiyama's instruction. The informative text is accompanied by over fifty illustrations, many in color, reproducing works by Ukai Uchiyama and enabling aspiring artists to understand how each painting was created. With a smaller size and new cover, this timeless Tuttle Classic (originally published in 1960), has been reformatted for a new generation of readers.

Ten thousand skies above you

In this sequel to A Thousand Pieces of You by New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray, Marguerite races through various dimensions to save the boy she loves. Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents' invention, to cross through to alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse-even hurt the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked, and his consciousness is scattered across multiple dimensions. The hunt for each splinter of Paul's soul sends Marguerite racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris, where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each dimension brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with every trial she faces, she begins to question the one constant she's found between the worlds: their love for each other.

Sidney Nolan - The Artist's Materials
Sidney Nolan (1917-1992) is renowned for an oeuvre ranging from views of Melbourne's seaside suburb St. Kilda to an iconic series on outlaw hero Ned Kelly. Working in factories from age fourteen, Nolan began his training spray painting signs on glass, which was followed by a job cutting and painting displays for Fayrefield Hats. Such employment offered him firsthand experience with commercial synthetic paints developed during the 1920s and 1930s. In 1939, having given up his job at Fayrefield in pursuit of an artistic career, Nolan became obsessed with European abstract paintings he saw reproduced in books and magazines. With little regard for the longevity of his work, he began to exploit materials such as boot polish, dyes, secondhand canvas, tissue paper, and old photographs, in addition to commercial and household paints. He continued to embrace new materials after moving to London in 1953. Oil-based Ripolin enamel is known to have been Nolan's preferred paint, but this fascinating study-certain to appeal to conservators, conservation scientists, art historians, and general readers with an interest in modern art-reveals his equally innovative use of nitrocellulose, alkyds, and other diverse materials.

Van Gogh: Cafe Terrace (Foiled Blank Journal)
Part of a series of exciting and luxurious Flame Tree Notebooks. Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed then foil stamped. And they're powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps and two bookmarks. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example is based on Vincent van Gogh's Cafe Terrace. In this painting the brightly lit cafe radiates with warmth and inviting light, becoming a beacon of yellow set against the rich, dark blue of a night sky, which in turn is illuminated by myriad bright stars. Van Gogh attached the colour yellow to feelings of religious inspiration, light and happiness.
