FEATURED IMAGE

Philip Guston: Late Works

"The Line" (1978) is reproduced from the new release, Philip Guston: Late Works. In the book, Guston is quoted: "I feel strongly believed in and stated convictions on art have a habit of tumbling and collapsing in front of the canvas, when the act of painting actually begins. Furthermore, I have found that painters of my generation are more candid and provocative in their casual talk and asides, and funnier too. Mark Rothko, after a mutual studio visit, said, 'Phil, you're the best story teller around and I'm the best organ player.' That was in 1957; I still wonder what he had in mind. So many articles appeared with words like sublime, and noble, and he says he's the best organ player around. Franz Kline, in a very easy bar conversation in the fifties, said 'You know what creating really is? To have the capacity to be embarrassed.' And one of the better definitions about painting was Kline's... He said, 'You know, painting is like hand stuffing a mattress.'"

JRP|Ringier

Founded in 2004, JRP|Ringier has lost no time in establishing itself as one of the leading contemporary art publishing company in Europe and the USA. Geniuses of the apt font and virtuosos of negative space in book design, JRP|Ringier make each one of their titles feel thoughtful and lovingly produced. Much of their list is oriented around series, such as the First Monographs ; the Positions artist’s writings series featuring Susan Hiller , Mike Kelley and Liam Gillick among others; the Documents critical readers (of which Hans Ulrich Obrist’s Brief History of Curating is an instant classic); the Hapax series of visual essays by cultural producers from various fields, such as Francis Baudevin and Scott King ; Christoph Keller’s carefully curated series of books by artists such as Mungo Thompson and Mai-Thu Perret ; and numerous other individual monographs, readers and DVDs.

ARTBOOK CURATED LIBRARIES FOR ART AND PHOTO BOOK COLLECTORS

An Essential Photography Library

An Essential Photography LibraryIn his essay, "Is Photography a Failure," reproduced in Aperture's Stieglitz on Photography, Stiegllitz writes, "This machine can negate ninety-nine percent of what was called and still is called painting. Through it a man who knows how to really photograph is able to channel the impulses of human beings and to register the objective world directly, through the science of optics and the chemistry of silver and platinum, translated into tonalities subtle beyond the reach of any human hand."
