Blake Rayne
Tense and Spaced Out : Polar Nights, Glacial Chaos and the Ecology of Misery

Edited by Katherine Pickard, Tim Saltarelli
Contributions by John Kelsey, David Lewis, Jaleh Mansoor, Javier Sánchez Martínez, Laura Owens, Sean Paul

Blake Rayne’s approach to painting stems from the duplicity of words like script, folder, application, dissolve, and screen. These operative terms situate his work between forms of linguistic description and the history of reflexive material practices in art. He begins from an orientation that considers the terms painter and painting as fictions with no stable material definition. Rather, they are shaped by always-evolving social, institutional, and physical relations.

Published in conjunction with Rayne’s first survey exhibition “Cabin of the Accused” (Blaffer Art Museum, Houston, October 22, 2016–March 18, 2017), Tense and Spaced Out spans Rayne’s work over the last decade, featuring long-form essays by Sean Paul, Jaleh Mansoor, Javier Sánchez Martínez, and John Kelsey, and shorter statements by Laura Owens and David Lewis. Not confined to the role of mere catalogue, however, the publication also includes documentation of the exhibition by a group of local high-school students and a magazine dedicated to Rayne’s 2013 book-object Almanac.

Florine Stettheimer
Painting Poetry

A new look at the art of one of the most charming and idiosyncratic personalities of early 20th-century New York Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944) was a New York original: a society lady who hosted an avant-garde salon in her Manhattan home, a bohemian and a flapper, a poet, a theater designer, and above all an influential painter with a sharp satirical wit. Stettheimer collaborated with Gertrude Stein and Virgil Thomson, befriended (and took French lessons from) Marcel Duchamp, and was a member of Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe’s artistic and intellectual circle.

Beautifully illustrated with 150 color images, including the majority of the artist’s extant paintings, as well as drawings, theater designs, and ephemera, this volume also highlights Stettheimer’s poetry and gives her a long overdue critical reassessment. The essays published here-as well as a roundtable discussion by seven leading contemporary female artists and curator Jens Hoffmann-overturn the traditional perception of Stettheimer as an artist of mere novelties. Her work is linked not only to American modernism and the New York bohemian scene before World War II but also to a range of art practices active today.

Flamboyant and epicurean, she was an astute documenter of New York and parodist of her social milieu; her highly decorative scenes borrowed from Surrealism and contributed to the beginnings of a feminist aesthetic.
