A SURREALIST STRATIGRAPHY OF DOROTHEA TANNING'S CHASM. Catriona McAra. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. Copyright 2017. Studies in Surrealism. An Ashgate Book. 150 pp. with 51 ills. (8 col.). 26 x 18 cm. LC 2016-26056 ISBN 9781472463449 In English.
Publisher's description: In A Surrealist Stratigraphy of Dorothea Tanning's Chasm, Catriona McAra offers the first critical study of the literary work of the celebrated American surrealist painter and soft sculptor. McAra fills a major gap in the scholarship, repositioning Tanning's writing at the centre of her entire creative oeuvre and focusing on the little-known manuscript, Abyss, a gothic-flavoured, desert adventure which Tanning (1910-2012) worked on intermittently throughout her creative life, finally publishing it in 2004 as Chasm: A Weekend. McAra undertakes a major reassessment of the visual and literary principles upon which the surrealist movement was initially founded. Combining a ground-breaking methodological approach with reference to cultural theory and feminist aesthetics, and with access to Tanning's unpublished journals and notes, McAra reveals Tanning as a key player in contemporary art practice as well as in the historical surrealist milieu.
