JANAINA TSCHAPE. Hirmer Verlag, Munich, 2017. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 240 pp. with 123 col. ills. 31 x 27 cm. ISBN 9783777426334 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: Sex, death, and the female body's capacity for renewal and transformation are among the themes that emerge from the paintings, drawings, and photographs of German-born contemporary artist Janaina Tschape. Physically sensuous, with rich, layered colors and soft lines, Tschape's works create the sensation of being underwater or suspended in air. This beautifully illustrated book -- designed and produced in collaboration with the artist -- is the first to offer a complete overview of Tschape's full body of work. Tschape's artistic process consciously mimics processes found in the natural world -- the product of the artist's time in Brazil, where the bounty of nature is such that living things must often emerge from something else, like a tree boring through a crack in the sidewalk or a plant breaking through a concrete wall. As such, the paintings themselves appear to be in the process of becoming made, palimpsests upon which each emphatic brushstroke partially occludes those made previously. In this way, Tschape gradually builds forms and finely calibrates color through layers of accumulation.
