A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Here is the full range of Safer's work, from the early sculptures in acrylic to recent monumental works in bronze, chrome, brass, and steel. It includes angularly carved yet hauntingly organic forms as well as highly polished forms that perfectly resolve his light-encapsulating style with the 3-D mass and density of traditional sculpture.

From Publishers Weekly:

An American sculptor whose works reflect his love of aviation and space technology, John Safer (b. 1922) twists metal and plastic into soaring, angular forms, with mirrorlike surfaces that manipulate light and color. Striving for simplicity, he gives materiality to ideals and concepts in works like Limits of Infinity, Unity and Bird of Peace. Finn's sensitive photographs (in 138 color plates) capture Safer's shapes in all their ambient power, fluid asymmetry and chromatic intensity. Boyne, former director of the National Air and Space Museum, follows Safer's stylistic evolution from constructivist compositions to biomorphic abstractions and his current monumental works.

Description de la librairie

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot.
