Nancy Grossman PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Nancy Grossman free pdf Nancy Grossman's work continually returns to the human body and the charged relationships that make up our world. She began as a painter in the late 1950s, working in a style that combined the energy of Abstract Expressionism with figuration. In the mid-1960s, she began incorporating found leather and metal parts into chaotic and explosive wall reliefs. Coming of age in the 1960s, Grossman was painfully aware of the condescending environment in which she and many women artists worked. Soon she began carving life-like human heads and covering them with black leather - a body of work she continued to create until the early-1990s. Frequently described as "disturbing," these images "blew conventional images of femininity to smithereens," as critic Holland Cotter noted. Alongside her three-dimensional art, Grossman has consistently created masterful drawings and revealing collages that give presence to emotional and physical struggle. This retrospective volume surveys all aspects of her independent and inspiring career. Published in association with the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College.
