    3-D art/techne the fourth title in the innovative New Mexico artist series, spotlights once again the art and artistic life in New Mexico today. 3-D art/techne explores the work of more than thirty artists based in New Mexico who use traditional skills in non-traditional ways or who use non-traditional materials in traditional ways.Recognizing that many people who work this way produce three-dimensional work, the book will focus on these who produce free-standing objects and those who may work on the wall but project out from it as well. Ranging from metal, wood, stone, clay and fiber to assemblage and glass, these works of art pose post-modern questions about modernist considerations of form and function. Over 200 full color images reflect the vigor and originality of artists whose work compares favorably with that being produced in major metropolitan art centers.

  • Aesthetics of Emulation In the Visual Arts of Ancient Rome

    By Ellen Perry

    Our Price: $103.00
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9780521831659
    • Publisher: CAMBRIDGE UP
    • Published: January 2005
    This book examines Roman strategies for the appropriation of Greek visual culture & argues that the earlier scholarship on this topic, dominated by copy criticism, has not appreciated Roman values in the visual arts. The book analyzes the Roman aesthetics that lie at the core of the visual conservatism--and innovation--in the art of that civilization & demonstrates that Roman aesthetics call for a range of visual appropriation in Roman art--including not only copying, but also such manifestations as illusion, parody, & most importantly 'aemulatio'--successful rivalry with one's models.

    Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is one of modernism’s most captivating and influential figures. First trained as a mechanical engineer, Calder relocated from New York to Paris in the mid-twenties where his acceptance into the city’s bourgeoning avant-garde circles coincided with the development of his characteristic form of kinetic sculpture. The early and much celebrated workCirque Calder, which was presented throughout Paris to great acclaim, prefigures the performance and theatrical aspects that dominate Calder’s pioneering artistic works and are situated as a primary subject of intrigue in this publication. Rather than simply refashion sculpture’s traditional forms, Calder envisioned entirely new possibilities for the medium and transformed its static nature into something dynamic and responsive.Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture provides detailed insight into that pioneering process through reproductions of personal drawings and notes and new research from a wide range of renowned scholars, furthering our understanding of the remarkable depth of Calder’s beloved mobile sculptures and entrenching his status as an icon of modernism.
