Lebanese artist, poet, filmmaker, publisher and writer Etel Adnan (born 1925) is often described as a wanderer between cultures, places, languages and forms of expression. In 1959, while working as a writer, she began to pursue painting and drawing, later going on to produce fold-out books, tapestries and Super 8 films. From the very start, her painting was possessed of a strong inner structure and organization: rectangles and cubes, laid on top of and beside each other, constitute her architectural vocabulary, often rendered in gorgeous pastels. She produces her work in one painterly flow, without making any corrections or painting over anything later. Her painting style is strict, earnest and sensitive, without any sensationalism or superfluous embellishment. Published in the wake of her huge success at Documenta 13, this volume accompanies a major show at the Museum Haus Konstruktiv.
