MARY HEILMANN: LOOKING AT PICTURES. Whitechapel Gallery, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 176 pp. with 100 col. ills. 27 x 24 cm. ISBN 9780854882472 In English.
Publisher's description: Mary Heilmann studied ceramics and poetry before moving to New York in 1968 and taking up painting. A pioneer of infusing abstract painting with influences from craft traditions and popular culture -- especially rock music and California beach culture -- Heilmann is one of the most important yet under-recognized artists working today. Mary Heilmann: Looking at Pictures explores the artist's approach to abstraction from two distinct but interrelated perspectives: the formal and the personal. The autobiographical dimension of the artist's work is clear in her pieces related to friendships, memories and places; while the formal aspect of her oeuvre is evident in her paintings of grids and squares rendered in primary colors and in works based on architectural planes. As well as a new essay by Briony Fer and writings on key works by the artist, the volume features over 100 beautiful full-color illustrations of paintings, works on paper, furniture and ceramics from Heilmann's five-decade career.
