Published by Locks art publications/ allentown Art Museum. Text by David Carrier, Elaine Mehalakes.
Warren Rohrer (1927Ė95) emerged from the experimental Philadelphia art scene in the early 1970s and became known for his luminous, color-saturated abstractions. This monograph, authored by philosopher and art critic David Carrier, is the first to trace Rohrerís trajectory over 40 years and describes the highly unorthodox arc of his life, from Mennonite stock in rural Pennsylvania to prominence as an exceptional abstract painter of the late 20th century. Carrierís account gives a rich understanding of Rohrerís quest to unite paint with atmosphere, land and light, and his enduring connection to Lancaster County, where he grew up. An essay by Elaine Mehalakes looks at the enigmatic late work of the artist, his Field Language series. The book includes 120 beautifully reproduced paintings, drawings and sketchbooks, and an illustrated chronology, representing the most comprehensive presentation of Rohrerís life and work to date.
