"Not surprisingly, along with this gift for distillation, Brainard had an uncanny eye for essential, revelatory detail; these contribute to the vivid immediacy and spontaneity of his work. In essence, such specific distillations can be understood as a form of abstraction, not the abstraction we affiliate with non-representational art, but something perhaps closer to the poetry: an 'aesthetics of attention' as critic Marjorie Perloff has said about its most important avatar Frank O’Hara.
Distillation, specificity, and a keen sense of intimate scale allowed Brainard to locate the extraordinary in the ordinary and curiously, something like the reverse: he could, with Nancy’s help, make the extraordinary seem ordinary."

Ann Lauterbach, excerpted from Joe Brainard: The Nancy Book.

Joe Brainard: The Nancy Book

Published by Siglio
Text by Ron Padgett, Ann Lauterbach.

From 1963 to 1978, Joe Brainard created more than 100 artworks that appropriated the classic comic strip character Nancy and sent her into a variety of astonishing situations. The Nancy Book is the first collection of Brainard's Nancy texts, drawings, collages and paintings, with full page reproductions of more than 50 works, several of which have never been exhibited or published before.
