Grapevine Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, Michael Frimkess, John Mason, Ron Nagle, Peter Shire. Curated by Ricky Swallow

Published by Rainoff, Amsterdam & New York, 2014, 88 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 29 cm, English

Price: €40 (Out of stock)

GRAPEVINE documents an exhibition curated by artist Ricky Swallow at David Kordansky Gallery during the summer of 2013. It focuses on the work of five California-based artists who redefined the use of clay in contemporary art, and includes images of works created over a period of more than 50 years. Ceramic sculptures by Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, Michael Frimkess, John Mason, Ron Nagle, and Peter Shire exemplify the ways in which the medium underwent dramatic changes after World War II. Also included are select works by other artists influential in this dialogue, such as Ken Price and Peter Voulkos. An essay by Swallow explores the movement’s idiosyncrasies and cross-currents, as well as its influence on subsequent generations of artists.

Texts Elizabeth Newman

Published by Discipline, Melbourne, 2019, 192 pages, 10.8 × 17.6 cm, English

Price: €9

Elizabeth Newman is best known as a visual artist whose practice encompasses a variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation. Writing, too, is central to her art. As indicated by the twenty-five or so texts compiled in this book, all dating from the last fifteen years, Newman’s literary output extends beyond her studio practice. Many of these texts are about artworks and exhibitions—her own as well as those of other local artists: they serve a critical rather than an aesthetic function. As such, these writings offer valuable insight into Newman’s artistic intentions and motivations, and her commentaries on the art of her peers constitute a compelling partial survey of art produced in Melbourne over the last decade and a half. Designed by Robert Milne.
