Synopsis: Art. A collection that accompanies Ascheim's exhibition in Amherst, 2003, it stunningly reproduces her paintings, drawings, and photograms. Detailing an incredible, abstract notion of space, "the relation between her hand's irregular gestures and the blank ground upon which she chooses to make them creates an almost musical harmony, where sounds and pauses are of equal importance to the whole" -- Regina Coppola. The compositions are introduced by poetic interpretation from Jeff Clark and Christine Hume. A collection perfectly suited for the bookshelves of artists, musicians, and poets alike; "if the night sky lights up with searchlights, your consciousness melts at the edges."
Product Description: All subsequent developments notwithstanding, Minimalism remains the dominant aesthetic of our time. Eve Aschheim, heir to this great tradition, transforms it with spatial illusion, the ghost of perspective, pictorial ideas from Minimalism's own roots--early Mondrian, late Cazanne, Suprematism. Of her drawings on mylar and their photogram echoes, the New York Observer recently said, "whenever I bump into one of Aschheim's drawings I want to bump into another."
