"Imagine a fluid intermingling of Abstract Expressionism in terms of a figurative disfiguration (after de Kooning), Pop comic rendering (pre-Guston), a heady Surrealism that anticipates the mind-expansion of the Wave series … and a cubism that is circular rather than faceted by geometry."
— Bob Nickas

  

KARMA, NEW YORK

Lee Lozano: Lozano c. 1962

Text by Helen Molesworth, Bob Nickas.

No title, 1962, is reproduced from 'Lee Lozano: Lozano c. 1962.'Interest has steadily grown in the career of the American painter Lee Lozano (1930–99) over the last decade, specifically in her move toward conceptual art that culminated in her boycott of women for nearly the last 30 years of her life. Lozano’s early work, however, is markedly different. In the early ’60s, she developed a painting method that coalesced several styles in order to relate her radical imagery to the feminist ideas that comprised the overarching beliefs in her life. “Imagine,” writes curator Bob Nickas, “a fluid intermingling of Abstract Expressionism in terms of a figurative disfiguration (after de Kooning), Pop comic rendering (pre-Guston), a heady Surrealism that anticipates the mind-expansion of the Wave series … and a cubism that is circular rather than faceted by geometry.” Packed with humor, sexual imagery and a heaviness of spirit, the 31 paintings in this book are intimate works, difficult to assign to an obvious tradition of painting. Essays by Helen Molesworth and Nickas further illustrate that, even when Lozano was using traditional material to make her art, her career was anything but.

No title, 1962, is reproduced from 'Lee Lozano: Lozano c. 1962.'

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

This handsome 96 page clothbound book accompanied an electrifying exhibition…[is] a subtle reminder that Lozano’s wry humor always has a razor-sharp edge.

Lee Lozano: Lozano c. 1962

"For me there can be no art revolution that is separate from a science revolution, a political revolution, an education revolution, a drug revolution, a sex revolution or a personal revolution. I cannot consider a program of museum reforms without equal attention to gallery reforms and art magazine reforms which would aim to eliminate stables of artists and writers. I will not call myself an art worker but an art dreamer and I will participate only in a total revolution simultaneously personal and public." – Lee Lozano.

Bob Nickas on Lee Lozano, c. 1962

Bob Nickas on Lee Lozano, c. 1962

In this small, pretty-much-perfect Lee Lozano exhibition catalog from Karma, curator, critic and Lozano authority Bob Nickas describes the artist's self-imposed exile from New York. "Lozano departed while still very much among the living, flipping a cerebral bird to the New York gallery world in 1971 never to return, an absence that extended for twenty-eight years, until her death in 1999. Her departure, it’s important to note, was not precipitated by the usual frustrations and disappointments that may occasion an artist to stop, or give up, having been offered less and less or nothing at all, but because she wanted something more of herself: to be the primary, driving force of her own destiny, no longer reliant on others for approval, love and direction." For a variety of reasons—including stellar texts, excellent design and production, and of course the work itself—this book is a must-have. Read more here. continue to blog
