Book description
Udomsak Krisanamis has offered the art world some of the freshest, most astonishing abstract paintings to be seen in the 1990s. Over the past decade, his work has retained formal and conceptual constancies, including the use of additive and reductive painting and collage processes, abstraction, and a disdain for obvious narrative. At the same time, his imagery has undergone some fascinating transitions, from restricted palettes and starry effects to bands and zones of texture and color to edgy, urban grids. Throughout his career, however, his work has continued to wed the conceptual clarity of modernist aesthetics to a more mystical expressiveness, creating paintings of remarkable beauty. The Intimate Portrait is an artist book conceptualized and directed by Krisanamis to accompany his autumn 2000 retrospective at the Wexner Center for the Arts, and is the first publication devoted solely to his work.
