Iconic Arte Povera artist Marisa Merz’s explorations of the human face and figure
This volume chronicles the career of Italian artist Marisa Merz (1926–2019), focusing on figurative works in a variety of media—drawings, unfired clay sculptures, copper and nylon weavings, objects transmuted in wax—with texts by Ester Coen, Douglas Fogle and Beatrice Merz.
Published by Hopefulmonster. Essay by Dieter Schwarz.
This collection of black-and-white drawings made by Marisa Merz between 2001 and 2004 rises from the complex movements of her hand as it explores the space of the drawing surface, maniacally repeating and insisting on the stroke of the pencil, existing as if in a graphic trance.

In Marisa Merz's drawings, "the stroke is maniacally repeated and insisted on, in such a way that the figure unconsciously emerges onto a surface racked by a vortex of signs; the hand seems to be guided by a rhythmic fortuitousness, a sort of graphic trance, and yet everything respects the compositional equilibrium of a remarkable energetic harmony."
