June Leaf: Thought Is Infinite

"Study for Woman Monument" (1975) is reproduced from June Leaf: Thought Is Infinite, published by Steidl on the occasion of the 87-year old artist's retrospective at the Whitney Museum—on view through July 17. The first book ever published on Leaf's work, this thoughtfully produced volume manages to capture the sustained intensity of Leaf's 60-year practice making poetic, visceral, often allegorical artworks that "deploy the fantastic to explore the folly of our existence and the possibilities of consciousness," in the words of Whitney curator Carter E. Foster. The work has made no concessions to fads or trends. It shows no concern for the contemporary art market. In all ways this book is a treasure.
