JOHN HILLIARD: NOT BLACK AND WHITE -- ABSTRACTION AND THE MONOCHROME IN THE WORK OF JOHN HILLIARD. Ed. by Duncan Wooldridge. Ridinghouse, London, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 112 pp. with 71 ills. (54 col.). 27 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781905464937 In English.
Publisher's description: Perhaps best known for his iconic "photo-conceptual" works produced during the 1970s, British artist John Hilliard continues to question the nature and limits of photographic representation. This career-spanning monograph draws together Hilliard's diverse engagement with photography with a focus on his fascination with the monochrome, abstraction and visual obstruction. Using new and pioneering processes such as overlaying prints and incorporating projector screens, the artist aims to disrupt the viewer's relationship to the photograph by placing a "puncturing and interruptive" monochrome at the center of many of these works. Included are several essays by the artist and artist/writer Duncan Wooldridge's survey on Hilliard's continuous challenge to photographic convention throughout his 40-year career.
