Eric FischlEric Fischl

Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Preface by Klaus Albrecht Schröder. Text by Elsy Lahner. Interview by Lawrence Weschler.

American painter, sculptor and printmaker Eric Fischl (born 1948) is internationally known for his unusual nude paintings, featuring couples and families, which explore tensions between sexuality and power. Many of his works specifically address coming-of-age moments, blossoming sexual awareness and voyeurism--the paintings "Bad Boy" (1981) and "Birthday Boy" (1983) both depict young boys looking at older women in provocative poses on a bed. A charged, oppressive sexual atmosphere often permeates his scenes and overshadows the relationships depicted. In contrast to the bizarre and often unsettling content of his work is Fischl’s bright color palette, with its lurid deep yellow and red tones. This catalogue focuses on Fischl’s graphic work, showing a cross-section of his substantial printoeuvre. Also included is an interview by Lawrence Weschler.

Vincent Desiderio: Paintings 1975-2005Vincent Desiderio: Paintings 1975-2005

Published by D.A.P./Marlborough Gallery.
Edited by Todd Bradway. Essays by Mia Fineman, Barry Schwabsky and Lawrence Weschler. Interview by Donald Kuspit.

The distinguished art critic Donald Kuspit reserved a chapter of his book, The Rebirth of Painting in the Late Twentieth Century, for Vincent Desiderio, who, he says, “pictures privacy, with great sensibility and masterful craft” and “Old Master brilliance.” This significant monograph, the first on the artist, will gain him the praise and audience his startling accomplishments and empathy deserve, as well as raise him to the top rank of contemporary painters, alongside Mark Tansey, Eric Fischl, John Currin and Gerhard Richter. More than 100 of Desiderio's works, some of them enormous canvases and triptychs, are faithfully reproduced here, and, thanks in part to five gatefolds their painstaking detail and sweeps of emotion can be truly appreciated. Desiderio's repeated themes and motifs, appearing in often perplexing narratives of great psychological complexity, strike at the intellect and the heart: art history (often manifested in piles of books open to paintings), human intimacy, heroic behavior and, perhaps most viscerally, the plight of the artist's handicapped son, Sam. Rounding out the volume are many works on paper and excerpts from the artist's sketchbooks, an interview by Donald Kuspit, and essays by Lawrence Weschler, Barry Schwabsky and Mia Fineman. Most of all, in Desiderio's highly original works, the viewer will rediscover painting's ability to both astonish and move.

Tucked inside issue number 3 of The Ganzfeld, for your reading and looking pleasure, are humorous picture stories on color theory, milk, where we go when we die, and the lost genre of blank books. And that's just the usual. Bringing together a unique group of designers, illustrators, cartoonists, and artists, The Ganzfeld provides the crispest picture of the state of graphic arts to be found anywhere. Issue number 3 features a unique collaboration between The Ice Storm author Rick Moody and artist Fred Tomaselli, a new picture story by designer Geoff McFetridge, and even an illustrated essay by Alfred Hitchcock. Lengthy comics and picture stories are contributed by an international group including Ren»e French, Ron Reg» Jr., and Adam Dent. This installation of the anthology also puts the spotlight on history: Lawrence Weschler writes about Brueghe, two prominent design writers, Andrea Codrington and Julie Lasky, each contribute articles on lost design arts of the past, while the Hairy Who (Jim Nutt, Karl Wirsum, etc.) are given a 30 page retrospective. An invaluable resource and pleasure source for anyone interested in the graphic arts and all their various manifestations.
