New York/California-based artist Elyn Zimmerman (born 1945) is primarily known for her large-scale, site-specific sculptures. However, she has also been creating and exhibiting drawings and photographs for 30 years. Zimmerman's photography was black and white throughout the 70s and for much of the 80s, until, in 1987, looking for more tone and texture, she created a portfolio of images called Magna Graecia--sepia-colored Iris prints on rough watercolor paper. A growing interest in color photography led her to produce the works collected in this book, with both the layout of the photographs and their subject matter having been initially informed by a series of drawings--the Water Drawings--that Zimmerman made in 2001, the year she began to employ full-color printing. Elyn Zimmerman includes an essay by Pepe Karmel and 70 color reproductions.

Description du livre Edizioni Charta Srl, Italy, 2013. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This title explores three recent series of works from American artist Elyn Zimmerman. Elyn Zimmerman s drawings and photographs emerge from the nexus of the Light and Space movement that coalesced in Los Angeles in the 1970s. Her works on paper demonstrate her uncanny ability to capture the subtle play of shadow and light, to evoke a sense of suspended time, and to expose the artifice of image making without diminishing its power. This book presents three major groups of works produced since the year 2000: the paintings on paper in the Water Rhythms series, the photographs of the Topographies series, and the pastel and pigment drawings entitled Heaven s Breath. Blurring the borders between mediums, these recent works reveal Zimmerman s ongoing exploration of the perception of light, shadow and colour across bodies of water, cliffs and fields, the bark of trees, veins of frozen lava, and the threatening masses or gossamer threads of clouds.
