Mary Heilmann: Looking at PicturesMary Heilmann: Looking at Pictures

Published by Whitechapel Gallery.
Edited with text by Lydia Yee. Text by Briony Fer, Mary Heilmann.

Mary Heilmann studied ceramics and poetry before moving to New York in 1968 and taking up painting. A pioneer of infusing abstract painting with influences from craft traditions and popular culture--especially rock music and California beach culture--Heilmann is one of the most important yet under-recognized artists working today.
Mary Heilmann: Looking at Pictures explores the artist’s approach to abstraction from two distinct but interrelated perspectives: the formal and the personal. The autobiographical dimension of the artist’s work is clear in her pieces related to friendships, memories and places; while the formal aspect of her oeuvre is evident in her paintings of grids and squares rendered in primary colors and in works based on architectural planes.
As well as a new essay by Briony Fer and writings on key works by the artist, the volume features over 100 beautiful full-color illustrations of paintings, works on paper, furniture and ceramics from Heilmann’s five-decade career.
Mary Heilmann was born in San Francisco in 1940. She studied at the University of California at Santa Barbara, San Francisco State University and the University of California at Berkeley before moving to New York in 1968. Heilmann began her career creating furniture and sculpture and moved into abstract painting once on the East Coast, experimenting with bright colors and unusual geometries that bridge two-dimensional and three-dimensional elements. She has been the recipient of the Anonymous Was a Woman Foundation Award as well as a Guggenheim Foundation award.

Briony Fer is an art historian who has written extensively on modern and contemporary art. Her research interests have consistently moved between the history of the avant-gardes and the work of contemporary artists, including Gabriel Orozco, Roni Horn, David Batchelor and Tacita Dean. Her books include On Abstract Art (1997), The Infinite Line (2004), and Eva Hesse: Studiowork (2009). She has also organized exhibitions of Eva Hesse’s studiowork as well as, most recently, an exhibition of the work of Gabriel Orozco, accompanied by the monograph Gabriel Orozco: thinking in circles (2013). In spring 2014, she was Kirk Varnedoe Professor at the Institute of Fine Arts in New York. She is Professor of History of Art at University College London and a Fellow of the British Academy.?

Mary Heilmann: Good VibrationsMary Heilmann: Good Vibrations

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Paula van den Bosch, Angelika Nollert. Text by Dominic van den Boogerd, Mary Heilmann.

With this substantial volume, the much loved New York painter Mary Heilmann (born 1940) receives a monograph worthy of her influential ouevre. Perennially tagged an artist’s artist, Heilmann paints as though unencumbered by precedent or influence, brazenly delighting in bright color, strong gesture, all laced with a palpable sense of play, warmth and fun. Her inspiring knack for insouciant gestures embody what critic Dave Hickey, speaking of her work, called “the surfer’s ethic of finding the moment to fall and never trying too hard to save your life.” Cubist clutter, Constructivist rigor, Abstract Expressionist splatter and Color Field glow all play a part in her approach, which nonetheless is always immediately recognizable as her own. This volume, which accompanies her 2012–13 major touring European retrospective, is the largest appraisal of her work yet published.

Heilmann: Seeing ThingsHeilmann: Seeing Things

Published by Snoeck.

In tandem with new shows and increased interest in American painter Mary Heilmann comes this artist's book. Mary Heilmann, a West Coast artist who relocated to New York in the 1990s, paints bright, abstract canvases that have been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. Next year, she is part of a group exhibition looking at artists working in the 1980s, which begins at MCA Chicago and travels to the Walker and ICA Boston. Heilmann's works can be found in major American museum collections, such as SF MOMA, New Museum, the Whitney and AIC. This small, intensely readable book brings together Heilmann's ideas, influences, sources and interpretations; it is the latest in the annual Kienbaum Artists Book series, a joint venture of Cologne-based industrialist Jochen Kienbaum and Snoeck publishers.
