Matt Mullican: Rubbings

Catalogue 1984–2016

Edited with text by Dieter Schwarz.

Matt Mullican: RubbingsDeploying a unique form of “frottage” technique, Matt Mullican’s (born 1951) Rubbings have served to record the abiding motifs and themes of his art since the early 1980s. From the beginning of his career, Mullican tried to create pictures that would not be paintings, producing banners, posters and, in 1984, his first Rubbing. The technique works thus: the canvas is placed on a cardboard plate, which is rubbed with an oil stick to transfer the image. The cardboard plate can be reused for other works, and so the imagery may reappear in different configurations. Each Rubbing is therefore at once a single work and a reproduction. Comprising around 500 works, documented by images and catalogue entries, this volume documents all of Mullican’s Rubbings on canvas from 1984 to 2016.

"Untitled" (Light Patterns), 2013, is reproduced from 'Matt Mullican: Rubbings'

Matt Mullican: Rubbings

Matt Mullican: Rubbings

"Untitled (History over Opera House Surrounded by Signs and Flags)" (1987) is reproduced from Matt Mullican: Rubbings, JRP|Ringier's beautiful new 448-page catalogue of the artist's frottage rubbings on canvas, 1984-2016. Essayist Dieter Schwartz quotes the artist speaking on the first thing that gripped his imagination as a young artist. "It was the idea that all I see are light patterns. I had deconstructed the world to simple patterns and I made artwork about light reflecting and light emanating. When you say that all you see are light patterns, you remove all subject matter. There is no difference between me looking at you and me looking at a ladder. They are the same because everything is simply abstract." continue to blog
