Description

Josef Albers: No Tricks, No Twinkling of the Eyes presents a reading of Albers' artistic and pedagogic legacy through the lens of contemporary artists, writers and art historians. Selections from Albers' own writings, including classic texts such as "On My Painting," "Color" and "On My Homage to the Square," mingle with essays by well-known Albers scholars Nicholas Fox Weber ("Minimal Means, Maximum Effect") and Jeannette Redensek ("On Josef Albers' Painting Materials and Techniques"); meditations by Norwegian artist Dag Erik Elgin ("Preparing for Painting to Happen"), Eva Diaz ("Jailbreaking Geometric Abstraction") and Doug Ashford ("Dear Josef"); and a collage sequence by Andrea Geyer that pays homage to Albers' prints. A wealth of color reproductions of Albers' paintings, prints and furniture are dispersed throughout the book. The design of this handsome, clothbound volume, by Jeanne Betak, draws on Albers' own typography and design sensibility.show more
