John Altoon


Monograph on the wok of John Altoon. "Published to coincide with the first major Altoon retrospective, this book includes works that demonstrate the constant interplay between figuration and abstraction in his oeuvre, as well as the artist’s facility with line and color. Dynamic and often erotically charged, the drawings and paintings are intimately connected—Altoon’s exuberant canvases both respond to and inform the primal energy of his works on paper. This book includes photographs of many previously undocumented works as well as a historical and contextual essay, a distinctive text by artist Paul McCarthy, and brief statements by Monica Majoli, Monique Prieto, Laura Owens, and Barbara T. Smith." --publisher's statement.
