TULA TELFAIR: INVENTED LANDSCAPES. Henry Adams et al. Abrams, New York, 2016. 160 pp. with 112 ills. (99 col.). 26 x 37 cm. LC 2015-955676 ISBN 9781419722356 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: Tula Telfair's hyper-realistic landscape paintings are at once awe-inspiring and extremely personal. Although vividly detailed, the scenes she depicts are not found in nature; they are conjured from memory and imagination. Informed by her experiences growing up on four continents, Telfair produces fantastical visions with delicate brushstrokes and a breathtaking mastery of color and light. Suggestive of waterfalls in Africa, deserts of the American Southwest, and ice floes in Antarctica, Telfair's art draws attention to the power and fragility of nature. Essays by Henry Adams and Michael S. Roth explore the technical and aesthetic aspects of Telfair's work, her personal history, and the interplay between realism and invention.
