NICHOLAS POPE. Adriaan van Ravesteijn et al. Ridinghouse, London, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 224 pp. with 183 ills. (155 col.). 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781905464777 In English.
Publisher's description: British artist Nicholas Pope was best known in the 1970s and early 1980s for his large-scale sculptures made of wood, metal, stone, sheet lead or chalk. Following his 1980 exhibition representing Britain at the Venice Biennale, Pope was awarded a cultural visitor grant to Zimbabwe and Mozambique, an experience that affected the rest of his life and twisted his artistic practice completely. In a move toward softer, more malleable materials such as glass, porcelain, texture, molded aluminum and ceramics, Pope began to make abstract works that reference complicated themes of religion, suicide and society. The first comprehensive monograph on the artist, this publication features more than 75 color illustrations alongside a substantial overview of the work by Penelope Curtis, texts by Christopher Townsend and Andrew Sabin, and an interview with Stephen Feeke.
