Publication of this title has been cancelled. Publisher's description: Featuring work from 1970 to the present, this eponymous volume is the first comprehensive collection published on the American artist B. Wurtz (born 1948). Working primarily with found materials to create formal sculptural assemblages, Wurtz has produced sculpture and wall pieces with quiet deliberateness for the past 40 years. As Wurtz puts it, " What I hope for in my pieces is a balance of seeing what the things really are and all that that implies -- their use value, their history, their birth into the world -- and, at the same time, recognizing the works' very formal qualities in terms of color, composition and line, which is where my part as an artist comes in." This nearly 500-page volume features a discussion between the artist and Laurence Sillars, curator at the Baltic Centre, as well as texts by writer Bruce Hainley and curator Helene Winer.
