Product Description


The immediacy and introspective journal source of most of the writing and the almost palpable quality of the illustrations makes Michelle Stuart: Sculptural Objects, Journeys In & Out of the Studio feel intimate: a bit like a studio visit, perhaps, with the artist. Stuart's distinctive art practice has evolved for over five decades, and Sculptural Objects is a visual and written record of things she has made, journeys, journals, and ideas.--Robin Rice"Woman's Art Journal" (04/01/2012)

An Engrossing Trip Through Creativity 28 Jun. 2011
By Abaka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think the blurb on the back of the book says it best: "Whether an earth-rubbed book object infused with soil from Canyon de Chelly or a multimedia work depicting crossroads of trade in the Yucatan, Michelle Stuart's art conveys a sense of cultural history and distant places. This intimate, visually stunning volume focuses on the artist's small sculptures and sculptural installations. Opening with an introduction by critic Lucy Lippard, whose decades-long friendship with Stuart gives her unique insight into her practice, the book features journal entries interspersed among its 160 illustrations, conveying an eloquent sense of time and process. Since the early 1970s, Stuart has pioneered highly regarded approaches involving the unusual use of materials such as earth-rubbed paper and the use of seeds as medium and subject matter. She has won international acclaim for her inquiries into nature, blending an interest in archaeology, biology, cosmology and history. Sculptural Objects provides a glimpse not only of what inspires Stuart's artmaking but also of the journey a creative mind takes in solving the mysteries of being."
