STRUCTURIST: THE ART OF DAVID BARR. Wright, New York, 2016. Distributed by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 40 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9780007685008 In English.
Publisher's description: Structurist artist David Barr (1939-2015) explored the intersection between art, mathematics and life in a distinct vocabulary of colors, shapes and volumes. As a true scientific-minded craftsman, his explorations of the mathematical aspects of art employed Fibonacci number sequencing and the Golden Ratio, demonstrating an innovative artistic approach to complex meanings. Throughout his career, Barr pursued connections between numbers and color in relief paintings, sculptures and writings -- enthusiastically searching for a grand synthesis in his studio practice and public art commissions. With Structurist, Wright's exhibition catalog introduces this trailblazer's legacy of public art to a wider audience in a thoughtful, yet playful survey of his life and work. Numerous artworks from his vast oeuvre have been reproduced here for the first time in 76 lavish color plates. An artist biography and timeline plus an essay by renowned Chicago architect, professor and colleague Laurence Booth round out this handsome publication.
