This is a superbly illustrated, intelligent, and comprehensive overview of the paintings of conceptual artist Bernar Venet. Based in New York City since 1966, French artist Bernar Venet has earned worldwide recognition for a practice characterized by its formal diversity and intellectual rigor. Perhaps best known for his signature steel sculptures, Venet's entire body of work is crisscrossed by themes that he first began to explore in paintings during the early 1960s. Two expansive essays provide the keys to unlocking more than fifty years of painting, from the earliest tar paintings and Cardboard Reliefs to works based on mathematical equations developed from 1966 onwards, the conceptual blow-ups, and the shaped canvases and Saturations of the 2000s.
