BENDIX HARMS: CHOSEN ONES. Gisela Corleis. Karma, New York, 2016. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 368 pp. with 320 ills. (300 col.). 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781942607281 In English.
Due date: August 2016. Publisher's description: Chosen Ones is a comprehensive monograph on the work of German painter Bendix Harms (born 1967), spanning over 15 years of work. A repertoire of motifs recurs throughout the nearly 400-page volume: birds, trees, airplanes, cars and the artist's profileFF, all rendered in loose, exuberant strokes of gray and muddy orange. Drawing on elusive autobiographical references, the paintings -- whether of grotesque figures or more surrealistic scenes -- are often humorous and suggestively narrative, compelling in their apparent disregard for and liberation from concept. "I love artists' late works," he has said, "when they display a completely free style because it no longer matters whether their work will earn them applause or a rap over the knuckles." The first major monograph on the artist, Chosen Ones features texts by Gisela Corleis and Grace Dunham as well as black-and-white photographs by Harms, in addition to reproductions of more than 300 paintings.
