MICHAEL VENEZIA: PAINTINGS. Kunstverein Heilbronn, 2016. Published by Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 160 pp. 20 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783864421648 In English.
Publisher's description: Works by New York-based painter Michael Venezia represent some of the most original artistic works produced within the Minimal art movement. Following the minimalist dictum of spatialization of color and the extension of pictorial space (in contrast to Flavin and Judd, who both renounced it), Venezia devoted himself solely to painting and the characteristics of its aesthetic presence: texture, paint application and process. Taking minimalism into consideration, Venezia leads painting toward a condition of being a "specific object." His "Narrow Bar" paintings -- in which color is no longer a neutral element but a full-fledged medium -- occupy a unique place in the contested zone between painting and sculpture. The careful presentation of Michael Venezia's work in this survey catalog from the museum exhibition at the Kunstverein Heilbronn is interspersed with autobiographical materials and an entertaining and informative interview by Tiffany Bell, herself known as an expert interpreter of Agnes Martin and Dan Flavin.
