9780714860794: Wilhelm Sasnal (Contemporary Artists)

Wilhelm Sasnal is one of the most celebrated artists to emerge from Eastern Europe in the twenty-first century. His practice embraces drawing, film, comics (his strips are regularly published in Machina and Przekroj, two Polish periodicals) and, above all, painting. Prolific, varied and deliberately unclassifiable, Sasnal channels the enigma of our contemporary image-based society.  For him, 'art is largely a mystery [that] touches upon the invisible, the unnamed.'  

His painting draws together Pop, photorealism, abstraction, minimalism and photorealism to describe both banal and enchanted details of day-to-day reality, placing diverse subjects on a plane of equality. His key subjects, however, which he returns to again and again, are the possibilities and limits of representation. In his work, material and image swap places, crossing and recrossing the border between depiction and abstraction, often several times in a single canvas..

Sasnal was awarded the Vincent Van Gogh Prize in 2006, and his work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at major museums across Europe, including the Kunsthalle Zurich, the Frankfurter Kunstverein and the Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst (MuHKA) in Antwerp. An exhibition of his work will open at London's Whitechapel Gallery in October 2011.

Review:

"Offers a great insight into sources of [Sasnal's] inspirations and fields of interest: painting about painting, figurative painting and portraits, the history of Poland and travel shots... The book itself is a journey full of facts and intriguing perspectives on materiality and subject matter of Sasnal's paintings and his way of deconstructing the different symptoms of current times... Jam-packed with fascinating personal stories and facts from the artist's life. It also provides an insightful view of historical and contemporary perspectives on painting in pre- and post-Iron Curtain Poland. The juiciness and meatiness of Sasnal's works is successfully explored with reference to historical lineage, which is timely and culturally valuable."-Cassone On the Contemporary Artists Series "The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about."-Artforum "The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art."-Time Out "A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists."-The Sunday Times "Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment."-The Art Book
