WHAT IF TEXTILES: THE ART OF GERHARDT KNODEL. Janet Koplos et al. Schiffer Publishing Ltd., Atglen, 2015. 214 pp. with 444 ills. (428 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 2015-941618 ISBN 9780764349942 In English.
Publisher's description: Richly comprehensive, this book gives us a one-of-a-kind look at all aspects of the work of internationally-renowned contemporary textile artist Gerhardt Knodel. Including over 400 images, it documents the development of Knodel's art from 1969 through 2014. Knodel became widely known for creating huge "environments of cloth" like 44 Panel Channel, a corridor of china-silk panels through which viewers walk, or the three-story-high Sky Court at Xerox world headquarters, a creation of wool, Mylar, and nylon. Knodel has transformed our view of textiles during the past 40 years, and here he describes his goals as well as his interest in the complex language of historic textiles as a stimulus to new work in the fiber medium. Experts share insights on the earlier phases of Knodel's work; his recent work, including a focus on games; and more. Resources include a biography orienting Knodel's influences to his works, plus an illustrated chronology.
