Frank Stella

Wonderful over-sized hardcover monograph on the work of Frank Stella, published only in Japan in 1991. Lavishly illustrated throughout with countless works of Stella’s, focussing particularly on his incredible works from the 1970s and 1980s that merge painting and sculpture into brightly coloured three-dimensional constructions. Adding this new, dynamic dimensionality to the painting, incorporating cast aluminium or sculpted fibreglass, each highly decorated or painted piece is set in relief – shadows and perforations become as much a part of the composition as colour and light. Idiosyncratic, unique, cosmopolitan with titles derived from literature or music or a geographical locale, the topographical nature of these works demonstrates what one writer called a “chaotic sea of images,” but it is within this chaos that Stella harnesses to serve steady invention. Beautiful large photographs, including great photographic imagery of Stella’s studio and works in progress, along with an interview and biography to accompany the many large photographs.

* Condition: Very Good (w. dust jacket, protected under mylar wrap) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Yayoi Kusama
Love Forever: Yayoi Kusama, 1958-1968 / In Full Bloom: Yayoi Kusama, Years in Japan

 

The original two-volume Japanese slipcase edition, published in conjunction with the exhibition “Love Forever: Yayoi Kusama, 1958-1968” which travelled between Japan and the US in 1999. This edition was available for the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo staging of the exhibition, and has been long out of print. Both volumes here are lavishly illustrated throughout with colour photographs of Yayoi Kusama’s history of work – the first book (“Love Forever: Yayoi Kusama, 1958-1968”) being a catalogue for the exhibition, featuring essays and documentation of the works in the exhibit spanning the years 1958-1968, including her New York happenings, whilst the second book (“In Full Bloom: Yayoi Kusama, Years in Japan”) illuminates many rarely seen works outside of Japan. Accompanied by texts, an interview and an exhibition history, this book is broken into the sections 1945-1959, 1970-1999 and is densely illustrated with colour documentation of her work created in Japan. Together chronicling Kusama’s life of creating work across painting, collage, soft sculpture, performance art, and environmental installations, of which most exhibit her thematic interest in psychedelic colours, repetition, and pattern, this comprehensive and collectable publication illustrates an extremely influential artist’s life of work. Based in conceptual art, Kusama’s work shows attributes of Feminism, Minimalism, Surrealism, Art Brut, Pop Art, Nouvelle Tendence (Op, Kinetic, etc.) and Abstract Expressionism, and is infused with autobiographical, psychological, and sexual content. Kusama is truly uncategorizable, and is celebrated as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan, and an important voice of the avant-garde.

Pierre Klossowski
Hommage a Klossowski

Wonderful and very rarely seen hardcover Japanese publication on the work of the great Pierre Klossowski. Features an extensive selection of his paintings and drawings reproduced in full-colour and black and white, alongside texts, biography and photographic portraits of Klossowski. Published by Atelier Peyotl and printed in Tokyo in 1988 on the occasion of a major exhibition at The Seed Hall, Seibu Shibuya . First printing in original illustrated dust jacket w. obi-strip.

Pierre Klossowski (August 9, 1905, Paris – August 12, 2001, Paris) was a French writer, translator and artist. He was the eldest son of the artists Erich Klossowski and Baladine Klossowska, and his younger brother was the painter Balthus.

As a writer, Pierre Klossowski wrote full length volumes on the Marquis de Sade and Friedrich Nietzsche, a number of essays on literary and philosophical figures, and five novels. Roberte Ce Soir (Roberte in the Evening) provoked controversy due to its graphic depiction of sexuality.[1] He translated several important texts (by Virgil, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Martin Heidegger, Friedrich Hölderlin, Franz Kafka, Nietzsche, and Walter Benjamin) into French, worked on films and was also an artist, illustrating many of the scenes from his novels. Klossowski participated in most issues of George Bataille’s review, Acéphale, in the late 1930s.

His 1969 book, Nietzsche and the Vicious Circle, greatly influenced French philosophers such as Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and Jean-François Lyotard.
