Live Forever and Ghost3 July 2011
- Published on Amazon.com
I ordered two of her books, Live Forever and Ghost, and I prefer Ghost.
I always feel that the oil paintings on printed books are too different from the original. When I took a look at the Live Forever book at the New Museum shop after the exhibition, I felt the pictures on the book doesn't render the special texture and color of her original paint at all. So I didn't buy it at that time.
Then Ghost took my attention recently, because it only includes her prints. I can always feel more like I'm looking at real pieces when I look at the drawings or prints on the book, and Ghost didn't let me down.
I can feel her work process here, especially with her conceptual monotypes. I usually do not take much attention to drawings and printings at the exhibitions due to limited time and my energy, so it's nice to look at them closely on my couch. This kind of book is always very welcome. Ghost is a bit expensive, but it is very high quality and has a really good color renditions. Printed in Germany, of course.
