Tony Bevan PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tony Bevan free pdf Tony Bevan (b.1951) is a British painter whose work has achieved widespread international recognition and acclaim. His work has always followed a distinctly individual course, arresting and disturbing its viewers with its rawness and sense of alienation. His use of charcoal and intensely chromatic acrylic paint gives his painting a distinctively rich, scorched appearance. This is the first major monograph to be published in English on Bevan's work and covers both his paintings and his works on paper. It reproduces over 180 works from Bevan's entire career: from the early single-figure paintings of the 1970s, through the more psychological portraiture of the 1980s and 1990s, to the series of Head paintings and paintings of open interiors produced from the late 1990s. Essays by Klaus Ottmann and Kosme de Baranano consider Bevan's depiction of heads and faces, while Marco Livingstone's interview with the artist examines Bevan's working methods, and Jonathan Sinclair-Wilson's essay places Bevan's work in a wider cultural context. The book also features a detailed, illustrated chronology, lists of exhibitions and public collections, and a select bibliography. Tony Bevan provides a long-overdue assessment of a major figure in contemporary art, and will be widely welcomed by art professionals and enthusiasts alike.
