The book will be a lavish celebration of mixed-media sculpture from around the world that highlights the prodigious talent of contemporary artists
The Language of Mixed-Media Sculpture is both a survey and a celebration of contemporary approaches to sculptures that are formed from more than one material. It profiles the discipline in all its expanded forms and recognizes sculpture in the twenty-first century not as something solid and static, but rather as a fluid interface in material, time and space.
The Language of Mixed-Media Sculpture embraces the expanded notion of sculpture, including: perspectives on the roles of the body (as object, performer and canvas), found and discarded matter, living and dead organisms, wax, gelatine, crystals, textiles, soap, sugar, air, sound and light. It reveals innovative approaches towards ideas and materials – the journey from inspiration to outcome, including the thinking behind concepts, practical processes adopted, technical information required and the dynamic final outcomes.
Insightful revelations of the creative journeys of ten renowned sculptors
Useful technical information on a myriad of processes and materials
Twenty-eight international sculptors showcased
Inspiring imagery with over 200 colour photographs
This sumptuously illustrated volume will inspire those intrigued by and interested in contemporary sculpture. Suitable for artists, enthusiasts, students and practitioners alike, the book will form an invaluable guide to the great plethora of twenty-first century art.
Available globally online and in good bookshops from Spring 2014 – I will keep you posted on the exact date.
