It's a book that really deserves a place in whatever room you sit in to relax and spend your quiet time. I see many art mediums - including wire - in a whole new way, and that is just what I look for in a book of art. Definitely on of my best book purchases in the past year.

Format: Paperback
I saw the Ruth Asawa exhibit at the De Young Museum (in 2007?) and was in awe of the work itself -- especially the hanging wire sculptures and wall wire sculptures -- and of the long devotion that the artist had to her work and to arts education. This book was written to coincide with the De Young show. It is well written, but what really makes it wonderful to look at are the photos of the sculptures and paintings.

I have pulled this book off the shelf many times to gaze at Asawa's art on the pages of this book. It is one of those books that one returns to often.

This is a splendid book about an amazing artist and her work and family. She has done very unusual sculptures that have endured stylistically for decades. She and her family are arts advocates and have made a significant contribution to the arts in California. The book is wonderful!
