Brice Marden (Hardcover)
Throughout his career, American artist Brice Marden (born 1938) has explored various modes of painterly abstraction, producing monochrome canvases in nuanced, muted hues as well as calligraphic compositions on a grand scale. This book marks the long-term exhibition of Moss Sutra with the Seasons (2010-15) at Glenstone Museum, a monumental five-panel painting commissioned by Glenstone and inspired by the artist's fascination with moss, the changing seasons and traditional Chinese calligraphy, among other subjects. The catalog includes two original essays by art historian Suzanne Hudson, an interview with the artist about this commission and a photo-essay by the artist's daughter, Mirabelle Marden, who documented the process of creating the work. Also included are reproductions of all additional works by the artist in Glenstone's collection, a group which spans each decade of the artist's career and an introduction by Emily Wei Rales, Founder and Director of Glenstone Museum.
