BOB LAW: FIELD WORKS, 1959-1999. Thomas Dane Gallery, London, 2015. Published by Ridinghouse, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 48 pp. 23 x 20 cm. ISBN 9781909932180 In English.
Publisher's description: Bob Law (1934-2004) is the founding father of the British Minimalist movement of the 1960s and '70s. This monograph -- his second from Ridinghouse -- focuses on the artist's early work at St. Ives in the 1950s, where he developed his Field Drawings series reducing landscape elements to abstract signs within a rhomboid frame. The series was, in Law's words, "about the position of myself on the face of the earth and the environmental conditions around me." Using a thickly drawn line to contain the almost-blank pictorial field, Law refined his early abstract language in subsequent monochrome works. The monograph accompanies a solo exhibition in London (2015), and features over 20 early works by Law and an essay by noted American curator Douglas Fogle on the artist's pursuit of the void's poetic possibilities. Law's artworks, internationally recognized and collected, can be found from MoMA, NY, to the Tate Modern, London.
