But, said ~30 years of discourse in one book naturally makes for a random/narrow, commercial/avante-guarde, didactic/speculative, confusing/convenient, heavy/light, etc/etc...all pretty consistent with today's painting going on. It's not to be read cover to cover, (mine stays near the tub,) and several of the essays are on the scholarly/ hard-to-decipher side. The essays date from 1981-2009 and include interviews, writings, criticisms, etc from well known (painters, critics, philosophers, hists, etc), to names you'll have to look up, if so inclined. There's 'mourning the death of painting', markets/capitalism/gallerism, Women in ptg., on China (Dafen), modern public/audience considerations, historical considerations, etc. Painters discussed or their writings, and some of the critics/writers include: Richter, Chuck Close, Dumas, Oehlen & Butzer, Jim Shaw, Storr, Philip Taaffe, B Milhazes, Tuymans, Curin, Mira Schor,... Deleuze, Groos, Collings &Alpers, Jerry Saltz, Storr, etcetc ... Thats only a few, random names...there's no shortage of subjects (size or range)...Easily more of these collections 'on PAINTING' could be similarly published with the 1000's of similar writings out there. Some of the best contemporary thought and musing is in this book but a lot is probably missing...Read more ›
