Designed in collaboration with the artist, this catalogue features a recent series of Australian-born artist Toba Khedoori’s (born 1964) oil paintings. Gatefolds allow the viewer to appreciate the impressive scale of these works, which often fill the viewer’s entire range of vision. Ropes in various configurations are a recurrent motif, along with subjects from the natural world, such as mountain ranges, tree branches and rivers. Spare, open expanses surround these detailed renderings, giving the images a calming and meditative quality. Khedoori’s art is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, among others. She was included in the 53rd International Venice Biennale in 2009. This generously scaled book includes an essay by noted writer Julien Bismuth and a full biography.
