WERNER BUTTNER: MY LOOTING EYE -- COLLAGES. Daria Mille et al. Black Dog Publishing Limited, London, 2016. Published in association with Marlborough Fine Art, London. 144 pp. with 121 col. ills. 33 x 27 cm. ISBN 9781910433836 In English.
Publisher's description: While the artist uses collages as the starting point for his paintings, the former are not only preparatory studies but a strategy that enables juxtaposing realities and unexpected associations, which are major characteristics of his extensive oeuvre. In this combination of the everyday and the commonplace, a sceptical perspective becomes manifest as a critical method. With cutting wit, Buttner breaks the spell of daily social events and renders their values relative and benign. This lavishly-produced book presents newly commissioned texts as well as key essays relating to Buttner's practice, and -- taken with its sister volume concerning his painting, Coincidence in Splendour (Worldwide 170582), are the first substantial books on Buttner in English.
