"I like the human flaw. Of not having any kind of…not using a ruler, not using a straight edge, not using a grid. Just spontaneously reacting to what's in front of you. I think that sometimes you play a piano concerto, sometimes you play a requiem, sometimes… It depends on what instrument you want to use and what tempo you want to have."
Julian Schnabel, in conversation with David Moos, excerpted from Julian Schnabel: Art and Film.

Julian Schnabel: Art and FilmJulian Schnabel: Art and Film

Published by Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto.
Introduction by David Moos. Afterword by Julian Schnabel.

American art megastar Julian Schnabel (born 1951) has made a métier of both painting and film, and while he is equally acclaimed for his achievements in each of these disciplines, the works have often been kept separate in the public eye. Yet Schnabel’s painting has drawn on cinematic imagery for years, often connecting otherwise disparate work via this theme, and his award-winning films have drawn on art both formally and as subject matter—most famously in the 1996 hit Basquiat. Schnabel himself resists categorization: “I make art,” he says,“whether it is painting, writing, photography or making a movie.” This survey of Schnabel’s career to date presents the artist’s painterly production, from the 1970s through to the present, juxtaposing his large-scale paintings with his numerous critically acclaimed movies—Basquiat (1996), Before Night Falls (2000), The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007) and his newest film Miral, which addresses the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The complete scripts of each of these movies are featured, punctuated with stills chosen by Schnabel. Published for the Art Gallery of Ontario’s 2010 survey, Julian Schnabel: Art and Film is the first appraisal of how Schnabel works across media, bridging painting, writing and cinema.
Julian Schnabel was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. His first solo show was at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston in 1976, but it was with his 1979 exhibition at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York that Schnabel first asserted his presence as a figurehead for new possibilities in painting. Retrospectives of his work have been mounted by Tate Gallery, London (1983), the Whitney Museum of American Art (1987) and Museo Nacionale Centro de Arte Reina Sophia, Madrid (2004), among many others. He made his cinematic debut in 1996 with his account of the life of Jean-Michel Basquiat, which starred Jeffrey Wright, David Bowie, Gary Oldman and Dennis Hopper. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly earned him Best Director both at the Cannes Film Festival and the Golden Globes, and an Academy Award nomination in this same category.

Julian Schnabel: Versions of ChuckJulian Schnabel: Versions of Chuck

Published by Walther König/Derneburg Publications.
Text by Georg Baselitz, Bonnie Clearwater, Rudi Fuchs.

A selection of new works by the celebrated New York artist (and filmmaker, and designer) Julian Schnabel, surrounded by unusually riveting texts by art world luminaries Bonnie Clearwater, Fudi Ruchs and Georg Baselitz. The paintings, prints and sculptural works gathered here are large and expressionistic, expansive, searching and fearless. They are like the artist, according to this catalogue’s foreword, “heroic yet human; innovative yet timeless…absent of cynicism masquerading as irony.” The central paintings are of a figure named Chuck, a surfer type who helped design and build Schnabel’s studio complex in Montauk, Long Island. Angelic, perhaps homoerotic, slightly unfinished, they definitely stake out new terrain for this quintessential, and deserving, New York art star.

Julian Schnabel: Paintings 1978-2003Julian Schnabel: Paintings 1978-2003

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Robert Fleck, Max Hollein, Alison Gingeras and Ingrid Pfeiffer.

Observers of contemporary art associate the name Julian Schnabel with highly evocative, large-scale paintings. At the time of his early exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe in the 80s, the larger-than-life Schnabel was loudly hailed as a new milestone in the development of painting, the savior of an art form declared dead years before. Still painting some of the most massive canvases around, Schnabel is a virtually unrivalled master in the use of "bigness" and a broad range of materials. Fragmentation and overlapping play an important role in his art, in terms of both material and content. If his paintings don't exhibit a consistent style, why should they? Instead, they combine oil painting and collage techniques, classical pictorial elements inspired by historical art, Neo-Expressionist features, as well as figuration and abstraction, gesture and structure. This volume presents a broad selection of Schnabel's paintings in a survey of his diverse oeuvre, with emphasis placed on works from 1990 to the present.
