GUNTHER GERLACH: SCULPTURE AND SPACE. Arie Hartog and Yvette Deseyve. Hirmer Verlag, Munich, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 144 pp. with 92 ills. (62 col.). 30 x 23 cm. ISBN 9783777420943 Bilingual in German and English.
Publisher's description: Gunther Gerlach is widely hailed for having forged a new direction within the long tradition of wood sculpture, with expansive, abstract works that nonetheless remain concerned with form and demonstrate his dedication and deep respect to this living medium. Gunther Gerlach: Sculpture and Space documents Gerlach's work over thirty-five years and offers the first comprehensive overview of his critically acclaimed career. Slender and arranged in groups of varying heights to evoke the human form or painted to mimic the appearance of metal or stone, Gerlach's sculptures are truly three-dimensional and of equal interest from every perspective. The space between the sculptures invites viewers to explore their placement relative to one another, as well as the empty space between them, lending additional layers of meaning to each work as part of the larger installation. In addition to eighty full-color illustrations, the book includes critical texts by art historian Arie Hartog and Yvette Deseyve that reflect on the artist's process and tendency toward experimentation.
