George Wardlaw: Crossing Borders

The artworks in this volume present six decades of art making by American artist George Wardlaw (b.1927), the first comprehensive account of this remarkable body of work. Over 180 full-color plates and illustrations offer an extensive look at Wardlaw s work played out on canvases, forged in metal, constructed in objects, sculpture, and installations. Critical essays by J. Richard Gruber, Ori Z. Soltes, and Suzette McAvoy characterize Wardlaw s work, placing it in context with the significant art movements of his time, beginning in 1948, with non-objective painting and tracing his journey across geographical, physical, intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual boundaries.
