The first extended monograph on Saar, featuring older and more recent works, gorgeously bound in cloth with embossed details

Drawing inspiration from the imagery of African, Caribbean and Latin American folk art as well as found objects and her own upbringing in a multiracial artist family, Los Angeles artist Alison Saar (born 1956) creates works that reflect on the duality of body and spirit within the context of a larger cultural setting, focusing in particular on black womanhood. In life-size wooden sculptures and mixed-media portraits, Saar crafts complex narratives about diasporic identity.

This publication accompanies an exhibition co-organized by the Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College in Claremont, California and the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, California. Alongside photographic reproductions of Saar’s work, the clothbound catalog contains an interview between Saar and the exhibit’s co-curator, never-before-published photographs from the artist’s childhood and poetry by Camille Dungy, Harryette Mullen and Evie Shockley.

'Alison Saar: Of Aether and Earthe' is a new release this week!

Featured spread is from Alison Saar: Of Aether and Earthe, published to accompany an upcoming exhibition at the Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College. The title Of Aether and Earthe suggests transformation of elemental properties, Rebecca McGrew writes, "with aether representing the spiritual and non-material, and earthe—in the archaic spelling—suggesting a rootedness in physical materials. The words have esoteric, alchemical connotations that stem from ancient and medieval science. Aether represented the fifth element—a cosmic essence that exists in and around the other elements of earth, water, air and fire. Aether was thought to be the source of the philosopher's stone, and scientists believed it was the material through which light moved." continue to blog
