NUDE

 Stefan Rappo's nude photography strikes an intriguing note between intimacy and distance. At first, the viewer feels a certain distance, and in the next moment they are entangled in the picture's tangible tensions and emotions.

Nude, Rappo's first publication, brings together some of his favorite nude photographs, indispensable for those who love nude photography.Stefan Rappo's nude photography strikes an intriguing note between intimacy and distance.

OBSERVER EFFECT: ON CONTEMPORARY PAINTING

Written by Schwabsky, Barry
Many consider Barry Schwabsky to be the critic on painting today, even if he does write copiously on other art forms,” write editors Rob Colvin and Sherman Sam in their foreword to this selection of Schwabsky's writings. Written since the turn of the millennium, the texts in The Oberver Effect include meditations on the broader context of painting today alongside reflections on such well-known American painters as Alex Katz, Kerry James Marshall, Nicole Eisenman, and Dana Schutz, as well as practitioners from Europe and beyond―Bernard Frize, Tal R, and Ha Chonghyun among them. As Colvin and Sam point out, the book “documents a dialogue between abstraction and the image” in which “images serve less to represent their described subject than to articulate the sort of painting each one desires to be.A collection of writings on art by Barry Schwabsky.
