One of two editions published of James Turrell: A Retrospective, as per the artist. This museum edition is a classic linen-over-board volume, with foil stamping and endsheets that echo the variegated blue shading of the cover. For sale only through the venues.
Published in conjunction with a major retrospective, this comprehensive volume illuminates the origins and motivations of James Turrell’s incredibly diverse and exciting body of work, from his Mendota studio days to his monumental work-in-progress.
Turrell’s work has been influenced by his Quaker upbringing, as well as his experiences with aviation, science, and psychology, and the exploding Los Angeles art scene of the 1960s. Every aspect of Turrell’s career to date is explored: from his early geometric light projections, prints, and drawings, through his installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, to recent two-dimensional experiments with holograms.
Featuring an in-depth look at Roden Crater, an interview with the artist and specially commissioned photography by Florian Holzherr.
Hardcover. 304 pages.
