The first monograph on the American artist Susan Weil, a respected figure in modern art history. A longtime fixture in the New York art scene, Susan Weil has always maintained an adventurous attitude toward material and form even as she continued to paint self-assuredly in both abstract and representational modes. Her mixed media works address the plastic quality of time and space through processes of cutting, crumpling, and refiguring her compositions. Weil has influenced many in the Abstract Expressionist movement—especially her ex-husband, Robert Rauschenberg, with whom she collaborated on many projects, most notably the Blueprint paintings of 1950. This monograph features Susan Weil’s sculptural paintings and installations made from an array of media, from paper to fabric, wood, aluminum, creased, cut up, and assembled in unexpected new orders.
The Sundaram Tagore Galleries in New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong combine visual arts with other forms such as poetry reading, dance performances, music, films and charity funding.
