Reseña del editor:

In this reading of Jasper Johns's work, John Yau focuses his attention on how the artist's pioneering paintings relate to life as it is lived - and on what they tell us about what it means to be mortal and alive in time. Along the way, Yau clears a much-needed path through the tangle of narrowly self-reflexive interpretations that have plagued so much critical writing on Johns's work during the past half century - providing a fresh approach and opening our eyes to Johns's accomplishment in revealing ways. This book is written with both precision and passion. It should be read by everyone who cares about modern painting.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
