Alexis Rockman: Drawings from Life of PiAlexis Rockman: Drawings from Life of Pi

Published by The Drawing Center.
Interview by Jean-Christophe Castelli.

Alexis Rockmanís watercolor drawings were the first stage in the development of the fantastical, imaginary world of Life of Pi, the 2012 feature film directed by Ang Lee. Lee sought out Rockmanís vision as an artist with a specific commitment to hand drawing to bring a human scale to the project--a sense of the material and the fortuitous that would come, for example, from the random bloom of watercolor pigment on paper. Though most artistic contributions to cinema are dependent on photo-realism or cartoonlike illustration, Rockmanís images are fluid, intimate and dynamic in a way that only drawing can capture. This publication accompanies The Drawing Centerís exhibition, providing a unique opportunity to explore the relationship between visual art--specifically drawing--and commercial filmmaking. More than 60 color reproductions are featured, alongside an interview with the artist by Jean-Christophe Castelli.

Alexis Rockman: The Weight of AirAlexis Rockman: The Weight of Air

Published by The Rose Art Museum.
Edited by Michael Rush. Text by Helen Molesworth, Brett Litman.

Disturbingly majestic hurricanes, wind-energy fields, tornadoes, landslides, waterspouts, melting glaciers, forest fires and newly mutant species are some of the subjects of Alexis Rockman's deeply hued and intricately crafted works on paper. Surreal and deeply critical of man's destructive relationship to the environment, the primary works collected in this volume, published to accompany Rockman's first major large-scale museum exhibition in the United States, were all made since 2005. With echoes of J.M.W. Turner, Winslow Homer, Charles Burchfield and Rockman's own inimitable realism, the works surge with a power and flow of color that announces a new direction for this remarkable artist, who has been praised as much for his figurative exactitude as for his wildly imaginative take on what is considered the real. Essays are by the Rose Art Museum's Michael Rush and the Harvard University Art Museums' Helen Molesworth; the artist interview is by Brett Littman of The Drawing Center in New York.

Alexis Rockman: Manifest DestinyAlexis Rockman: Manifest Destiny

Published by Gorney Bravin + Lee/Brooklyn Museum.
Edited by Sheri Pasquarella. Essay by Maurice Berger. Foreword by Arnold Lehman and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Alexis Rockman's Manifest Destiny translates into haunting yet inspiring simplicity the environmental crisis of global warming. In conjunction with the opening of the Brooklyn Museum's new entrance pavilion in April 2004, the distinguished American artist Rockman (born 1962) was commissioned to paint a visionary 8-by-24-foot mural about the distant future boroughs. Rockman's project suggests what geological, botanical and zoological changes might transpire in the ecosystem of the area thousands or even millions of years ahead. Believing that the past provides clues to the future, Rockman drew from the museum's historical paintings collection for source material, including such works as Albert Bierstadt's A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Rosalie (1866), a monumental Hudson River School landscape. The artist is also not without humor--humans may have drowned Brooklyn, but the world survives, and here and there, life's indomitable spirit prevails. On top of a floating oil drum, its antennae rapt with attention, is that ineradicable symbol of eternity--the cockroach. This book looks at preliminary drawings and research by the artist for Manifest Destiny and contains a full-color foldout image of the mural.
