Doug Argue: Letters to the Future

Edited by Claude Peck & Paola Gribaudo.

Large-scale abstract paintings by Doug Argue: a comprehensive survey and exploration of his influences

This monograph presents 170 reproductions from the prolific career of New York-based, Minnesota-born painter Doug Argue (born 1962), from early expressionist figurative paintings to a 2018 series inspired by modernists. The book includes essays exploring Argue’s influences and a poem by Ocean Vuong.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Poet Laureate of the United States from 2001 to 2003

Billy Collins

A gorgeous commemoration of Doug Argue and his changing- evolving- styles. I'm pushing everything else off the coffee table. Big Argue’s Comin’ In !

"Artist, author, critic, and curator"

Robert Storr

I have known Doug Argue's work for years, have followed its metamorphosis and have been impressed by the energy that goes into and comes out of it. Here we have a record of all that energy compressed into one handsome volume.

Alice Pratt Brown Director and Whitney Museum of American Art

Adam Weinberg

It's wonderful to be reminded of the 35 year trajectory of Doug Argue's work. It's a gorgeous book- great images, beautifully printed.

"Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Art History and Philosophy, State University of New York at Stony Brook"

Donald Kuspit

Doug Argue is a great virtuoso, making paintings that cover the range of styles, from witty representational works to exquisite abstractions. He has absorbed all of art history, using its resources critically, to fresh aesthetic and expressive effect. His art is a stunning achievement, all the more so because its contradictions bespeak those of our society. Beautifully illustrated, and with insightful essays about his work, this book is a testimony to his brilliance.
