CHRISTIAN ROSA: I AM IN LOVE WITH THE COCO. Kunstverein Heilbronn, 2015. Published by Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 64 pp. 33 x 24 cm. ISBN 9783864421235 In English.
Publisher's description: I am in love with the Coco, the second publication by young, fast-moving international artist Christian Rosa (b. 1982) documents his most current paintings in this handsome overscaled exhibition catalog from Kustverein Heilbronn, Berlin. The Vienna- and Los Angeles-based artist's works on canvas are minimal compositions -- colorful loops, craquelures, obliterations and casually painted bubbles and squares -- on unprimed, rough beige canvas. His playful reductive approach to form and color is reminiscent of the work of Cy Twombly and Joan Miro and implicitly recalls Roland Barthes's Empire of Signs. Painting since 2006, Rosa is currently considered one of the most compelling young contemporary artists. His first catalog, Love's gonna save the day, was published in collaboration with CFA Gallery Berlin (2014). Also included is an insightful essay by exhibition curator Marrhia Lobke.
