ARIK LEVY: ART. Black Dog Publishing Limited, London, 2013. 304 pp. with 284 ills. (247 col.). 27 x 21 cm. ISBN 9781908966568 In English.
Publisher's description: Arik Levy: Art, published as a sister volume to a forthcoming book on Levy's design, encompasses the last ten years of the Israeli born, Paris-based, practitioners output. Artist, technician, photographer, designer and filmmaker, Levy's skills and indeed outlook are entirely multidisciplinary, whilst his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Influenced by Arte Povera, he is comparable to Anish Kapoor and Jeff Koons in sharing an exploration of advance manufacturing processes within his work, often taking the form of highly polished metal structures. Yet Levy is distinctly committed to an ideology of nature and natural materials despite his working with the constraints of industrial forms and manufacturing processes. Indeed he considers himself more of a "feeling" artist, this tactile association with nature fostered perhaps by his background and time spent in different corners of the globe, musing that the world is about people, not objects". To that extent, perhaps his harmonious approach disseminates his interest in the difficulties of categorisation within areas of the arts, where objects, critiqued in often abstract terms, as being either design or art are judged differently in terms of value, both financial and critical.
