Charles Ross: The Substance of LightCharles Ross: The Substance of Light

Published by Radius Books.
Text by Thomas McEvilley, Klaus Ottmann, Virginia Dwan, Anna Halprin, Michael Heizer, Steve Katz, Donald Kuspit, Ed Ranney, Jean-Hubert Martin. Interview with Löic Malle.

Charles Ross’ fascination with light, time and the space of the stars has produced a major earthwork, large-scale prism installations, sculpture, and painting with dynamite. From Star Axis, a vast architectonic earth/star work in the New Mexico desert, to his Solar Burns series made by burning wood-panel monochromes with focused rays of the sun, Ross allows the natural patterns and forces of the cosmos to inform his work. The Substance of Light is a comprehensive volume that covers over four decades of work and features full-color illustrations of his Solar Spectrum artworks, Star Axis, his Solar Burns, Star Maps and Explosion Paintings and Drawings, along with early work and selected architectural commissions. Major essays by Thomas McEvilley and Klaus Ottmann, as well as an extensive interview with Loïc Malle and a range of historical texts are also included.

Louise Bourgeois: The Return of the RepressedLouise Bourgeois: The Return of the Repressed

Psychoanalytic Writings

Published by Violette Editions.
Edited by Philip Larratt-Smith. Text by Louise Bourgeois, Elisabeth Bronfen, Donald Kuspit, Juliet Mitchell, Mignon Nixon, Paul Verhaeghe with Julie de Ganck, Meg Harris Williams.

Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010) invented a new kind of language for sculpture--a language that was essentially psychoanalytic, uniquely capable of expressing oedipal struggle, ominous forces of repression, sexual symbolism and material uncanniness. Famed for some of the twentieth century’s most enduring works, such as “The Destruction of the Father” (1974), “Arch of Hysteria” (1993) and “Maman” (1999), Bourgeois also disseminated her influence through her writings, collected in the 1998 volume Destruction of the Father/Reconstruction of the Father: Writings 1927–1997--originally published by Robert Violette, also the publisher of this new deluxe writings-cum-monograph two-volume set. Louise Bourgeois: The Return of the Repressed highlights the enduring presence of psychoanalysis as a motivational force and a site of exploration in the artist’s life and work. Selected and edited by Philip Larratt-Smith (Bourgeois’ literary archivist), and contextualized with eight extensive scholarly essays, this collection of approximately 80 previously unpublished writings spans some six decades of the artist’s production. The second volume in this gorgeous slipcased set is an impressive, up-to-date Bourgeois monograph that details works made right up until the artist’s death in 2010. Together, the two volumes comprise the most complete portrait of the life, work and thought of this seminal figure.

Robert Motherwell: OpenRobert Motherwell: Open

Published by 21 Publishing Ltd.
Text by Matthew Collings, Mel Gooding, Robert Hobbs, Donald Kuspit, Robert S. Mattison, Saul Ostrow, John Yau.

Robert Motherwell, who died in 1991, was the youngest member of the first wave of Abstract Expressionists known as the New York School (a phrase he coined), which also included Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning and Barnett Newman. An articulate writer, Motherwell was pegged early on as the intellectual of the group. Robert Motherwell: Open is the first examination of the painter's Open series, which preoccupied him from 1967 until the last years of his life. Pared down and minimal, these paintings differ greatly from his more dynamic and monumental Elegies series, for which he is perhaps best known. Containing many previously unpublished paintings as well as works in public collections, this monograph--the most comprehensive and best-illustrated book on Motherwell currently in print--introduces a series of texts by critics and art historians John Yau, Robert Hobbs, Matthew Collings, Donald Kuspit, Robert Mattison, Mel Gooding and Saul Ostrow.

Orlan: The NarrativeOrlan: The Narrative

Published by Charta.
Text by Lóránd Hegyi, Joerg Bader, Eugenio Viola, Marcela Iacub, Donald Kuspit, Peggy Phelan.

Since 1990, French-born artist Orlan has done seven plastic surgery “performances” which have radically reconstructed her face. She last added futuristic-looking pads of skin to each temple--utilizing the process which ordinarily constructs heightened cheekbones. In a 1998 digital photography series called Self Hybridization, she montaged pictures of herself with images of Pre-Columbian, American Indian, African and “mutant” figures. Notorious for the kind of stunts that make good sound bites--on French television in 1993, she gave Madonna a reliquary containing a few grams of flesh that had been removed during surgery, to which Madonna replied, “It looks like caviar”--Orlan has been the subject of a host of critical writings in the fields of Feminism, Body art and Performance art. Orlan’s most definitive monograph to date, this volume contextualizes past works--which include not only performance, but painting, sculpture, photography and poetry--with the plastic surgery pieces for which she is best known. It is published following the artist’s first museum retrospective, which took place at the Museum of Modern Art in Sainte-Etienne, France, on the occasion of her sixtieth birthday, in 2007. Organized by Lóránd Hegyi, co-curator of the 2003 Venice Biennale, the retrospective brought Orlan’s entire oeuvre together for the first time; Hegyi also contributes an incisive essay to this monograph.

Neo Rauch: Neue RollenNeo Rauch: Neue Rollen

Paintings 1993-2006

Published by Dumont Buchverlag.
Forword by Markus Brüderlin. Text by Gottfried Boehm, Gernot Boehme, Wolfgang Büscher, Holger Broeker, Markus Brüderlin, Harald Kunde, Donald Kuspit.

In a lakeside scene, a man leans on a graphic of an arrow as if it were a rake handle in the garden; tentacles rise from the shoreline and rectangular speech bubbles hang empty in the yellow sky. In a Dali-esque interior, the corner of a comforter drips off a bed. This major new overview of the work of the Leipzig painter Neo Rauch makes, once again, the case that he is one of the most important artists of his generation. He remains committed to putting brush on canvas in an age when digital media are gaining ground, and among a crowd of similarly dedicated colleagues, he stands out at the forefront. While his work of the 1980s was influenced by Expressionism, his more recent portfolio revels in a new take on Socialist Realism, clearly shaped by the experience of growing up in the former East Germany. Rauch riffs on the once-mandated styles of his youth and on western abstraction from the second half of the twentieth century, all in coloration and figuration that directly allude to the Socialist past. Between cartoon styling and historic technique, he has found a distinctive style, palette and concept. These dreamlike sequences feel both timeless and deeply rooted: Rauch gathers figures from the past in surreal landscapes and interiors to tell enigmatic stories about the present.

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.

Yasumasa Morimura: Daughter Of Art HistoryYasumasa Morimura: Daughter Of Art History

Published by Aperture.
Foreword by Donald Kuspit.

Since the 1980s, Yasumasa Morimura has been invading the canon of Western art--offering both wry commentary and loving tribute--by replacing the figures and faces of its masterpieces with his own. After painstakingly recreating the surroundings of some of the most iconic paintings, Morimura assumes their subjects' identities through elaborate makeup and costume and inserts himself into the scene. Daughter of Art History includes a foreword by art historian Donald Kuspit who describes Morimura's art as “a kind of Wagnerian Gesamtkunstwerk, in which painting, sculpture and photography form a seamless conceptual whole. His photographs may be mock masterpieces, but they are nonetheless masterpieces, for they show mastery of three mediums usually regarded as irreconcilable.

Expressive!Expressive!

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Donald Kuspit and Markus Brüderlin.

The quality of expressiveness--an outcry of the human soul against the mechanization of life--runs like a red scar through the entire history of modern art and up to the present day. If expressionism is associated first and foremost with the German contribution to Modernism, evoking the artists associated with Die Brcke (Kirchner, Heckel and Nolde) and Der Blaue Reiter (Marc and Kandinsky), but also the Austrian Schiele and Kokoshka, and the Parisian fauves, it nevertheless goes further. Beginning with the fathers of expressionism, Gauguin, van Gogh and Munch, the most important inspirations for a movement laden with emotions and endowed with the furor of rebellion, the red scar bleeds through the expressive tendencies of the interwar artists (Beckmann, Soutine and Picasso) and the postwar artists (Dubuffet, de Kooning and Bacon), and all the way to neo-expressionism (Baselitz, Lpertz, Lassnig) and 80s neo-fauvism (Clemente, Basquiat and Disler), ending with Louise Bourgeois and Bruce Nauman. In accompanying essays, philosopher and art historian Donald Kuspit sets out to trace the meaning of the term "expressive"; curator Markus Brderlin explores expressionism by looking backwards from neo-expressionism; and numerous short texts round off the exploration by focusing on individual works of art.

Xenia Hausner: Heart Matters

Published by Forum Gallery, New York.
Essays by Aleksandr Borovsky, Wieland Schmied and Peter Weiermair. Introduction by Donald Kuspit.

The dramatic, expressionist work of Berlin-based artist Xenia Hausner intelligently captures the personal and social conflicts of both the artist and her subjects. With unflinching directness, she engages the viewer using radical color and aggressive brushstrokes. As we are drawn into Hausner's paintings, her characters reveal themselves with an abandon akin to the artist's bold and daring technique. Heart Matters showcases work that combines the energetic and unsettling style of such German artists as Otto Dix and Max Beckman with the warmth and subjective immediacy of figurative art. In portraying the emotional lives of her subjects with an attentive eye and heart, Hausner highlights the passion for love, desire, survival and knowledge that still exists within our fragmented and often cold and disorienting culture. Via her unique approach, Hausner offers an insight into the hopes and dreams of the people she paints, enabling us to see them as figures with a past, present and future--revealing, in the process, the truths and paradoxes inherent in her life and ours.

Jacqueline Humphries PaintingsJacqueline Humphries Paintings

Published by Kerber.
Essay by Donald Kuspit. Introduction by Ute Riese.

Jacqueline Humphries's abstract pictures emerge out of the fundamentals of minimal and conceptual painting. These works range in style from multihued canvases to paintings of solid black with only minimal gray tones interspersed, to NeoPointillist fields of dots. Her work occupies a unique tension between regularity and irregularity that is truly intriguing.

As we are drawn into her paintings, her characters reveal themselves with the same abandon that defines the artist's bold and daring technique. Heart Matters, which documents Hauser's first one-person show at the Forum Gallery, New York, showcases work that combines the energetic and unsettling style of such German artists as Otto Dix and Max Beckman with the warmth and subjective immediacy of figurative art. In portraying the emotional lives of her subjects with such an attentive eye and heart, Hausner highlights the passion for love, desire, survival, and knowledge that still exists within our fragmented and often cold and disorienting culture. With her unique approach Hausner offers an insight into the hopes and dreams of the people she paints, enabling us to see them as figures with a past, present, and future--and in the process she reveals the truths and paradoxes inherent in her life and ours.

With over 100 color reproductions, this handsome monograph provides the first comprehensive overview of the work of Norwegian painter, Odd Nerdrum. Describing the work, art critic Donald Kuspit writes, "It is because Nerdrum heroically brings together breakdown and beauty that his paintings are as reliably absurd--as absurdly sublime--as those of the Old Masters."
