Text by Alexi Worth.
Described variously as Minimalist, Conceptualist, Pop and (more recently) proto-Neo-Geo, Richard Artschwager's art has long defied easy categorization, a sure sign that he has been doing something right. His career as a sculptor and draughtsman has playfully engaged issues of surface, material, object and function to pose repeatedly the Duchampian question: what constitutes an art object? Objects as Images of Objects is a 40-year survey of drawings in charcoal, ink and pastel, from the 1960s to the present, by an artist for whom drawing has remained primary, a spine of continuity throughout his many preoccupations. The diversity of imagery contained in these works on paper--including colorfully surreal landscapes and ambiguous shapes and objects that wreak havoc with cognition, sometimes floating on a sheet or arranged in different perspectives, other times taken from photographs and newspapers--reflect the artist's highly idiosyncratic approach to image-making.

Artwork by Richard Artschwager. Edited by Peter Noever. Contributions by John Yau. Text by Jŕrg Heiser, Anthony Vidler.
One of the pioneers of contemporary object and installation art, Richard Artschwager's three-dimensional paintings and two-dimensional sculptures wittily evoke associations with commonplace objects such as furniture and household appliances. Accompanying essays consider Artschwager's artistic development, the meaning of surface quality in his work, and his place within the context of relevant art movements.

For nearly sixty years, Richard Artschwager (b. 1923) has undertaken an unrelenting investigation of art's ability to mediate contemporary experience and perception. Although his work, which includes sculpture, painting, prints, and drawing, is often characterized as having elements of Pop Art, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art, his practice defies easy categorization and his oeuvre is not entirely understood. In Richard Artschwager! the breadth of the artist's idealistic, diverse work, and unconventional materials, such as Formica, rubberized hair, and Celotex, is fully illustrated and explored for the first time.
The four essays in this volume illuminate previously unaddressed aspects of Artschwager's work, including his response to life in the age of mechanical reproduction, the relationship of his work to mainstream art, and his recent work's connection with Post-Impressionism. These texts, along with new photographs, previously unpublished archival images, and details of his materials, offer a compelling new look at one of the most singular artists of the 20th century and why he remains a highly influential figure today.
