Collected Works Frances Stark

Published by Walther König, Köln, 2008, 160 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21.5 × 27.8 cm, English

Price: €37

The Los Angeles-based artist and art writer Frances Stark has gathered an international cult following for her prolific prose and her smart, honest and intimate artwork. This engaging artist’s book is conceived as a companion piece to Stark’s Collected Writings 1993–2003, fashioning itself as a graphic counterpart that draws from the artist’s paintings, collages, drawings, videos, poetry and more, from 1993 to the present. Through provocative and diaristic text notes printed alongside Stark’s sometimes humorous, often self-scrutinizing images, Collected Works addresses the paradox of reproducing visual art that is essentially non-photogenic by nature–because of its tactility, detail or scale.
