Michael Heizer: Altars PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Michael Heizer: Altars free pdf Created in close collaboration with the artist, this beautiful new book not only presents Michael Heizer's first exhibition with Gagosian Gallery in New York, but also firmly establishes the artist's reputation as a legendary sculptor. Working largely outside the confines of the gallery and museum world, Heizer has redefined sculpture in terms of size, mass, gesture, and process. Heizer's work "City," an enormous complex in the rural desert of Lincoln County, Nevada, was recently designated Federally Protected Land. He draws on both ancient and contemporary architecture and art, cultivating tons of materials, including dirt, rock, and steel, in his quest to create a "permanent American art." This book, which features beautiful images of rarely or never-before-seen early paintings, the "Altar" series of new monumental steel sculptures, and negative wall sculptures of metamorphic and igneous rocks, serves to illustrate this quest.
