Présentation de l'éditeur

Sheila Hicks (born 1934) is a pioneering artist noted for objects and public commissions whose structures are built of colour and fibre. This volume accompanies the first major retrospective of Hickss work; it documents the remarkable versatility and dramatically divergent scale of her textiles as well as her distinctive use, and surprising range, of materials. Hicks deliberately and provocatively engages what are often considered mutually exclusive domains, rethinking and pushing the limits of generally accepted contexts, conditions, and frameworks. These include distinct objects and temporal, performative actions; studio works and commissions for public buildings; and textiles made in artisanal workshops as well as for industrial production in places as different as Chile, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Sweden, and the United States. Three essays analyze the progression of Hickss art and technique and her many modes of working. Among other topics, they examine the artists relationship to the expanded fields of the new sculpture and the new tapestry beginning in the 1960s, the reclamation of craft as subject and technique for artists in many media, the integrated influences of international cultures, and the aesthetic, pedagogical, conceptual, and historical framework from which Hickss work has developed. This publication reveals the full extent of Hickss work, from exquisite miniature weavings to major sculptural pieces to such large-scale commissions as The Four Seasons of Fuji. Exquisitely designed and lavishly illustrated, this book demonstrates that Hickss pioneering work with textiles has embraced yet reinvented tradition, successfully navigating the terrain between art, design, and architecture.

HASH(0x8c8e9c18) étoiles sur 5 Amazing History of a Talented Artist 12 mars 2013

This is a book about an amazing artist. It was well written, the photographs of the weavings and installation were outstanding. I have admired the work of this artist for many years and am planning a presentation about her work. This book has made my research so much easier.

I would recommend it to anyone interested in the art of weaving.

HASH(0x8c8e9e64) étoiles sur 5 Sheila Hicks 14 février 2013
Par Turner McGehee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is now the most complete and comprehensive book about the career of Sheila Hicks, and it is likely to remain the definitive retrospective for many years.

The book has extraordinarily beautiful photographs and layouts. It is a volume that works as both a lovely "coffeetable" picturebook, and a very smart scholarly analysis.

HASH(0x8c8ed264) étoiles sur 5 Sheila Hicks is as refreshing in her weaving and fiber artistry today as she was 50 years ago 1 mars 2014
Par Julie W. Snyder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have seen a number of Sheila Hicks' fiber installations over the years and they are classic and stunning. They just take your breath away. I always think of the pounds and pound of fibers it must have required when I see some of the pictures in this wonderful book.

This is more than a coffee table book, her creativity is inspiring and you want to study the pictures to try and imagine how she accomplished some of the larger pieces and installations.

In January we spent some time in Chile and were taken to an older church that is now an Art Center. I walked in and there was a huge floor to ceiling installation. It wasn't done by Hicks, but by one of her students who had been influenced by Hicks
when she taught a class in Santiago. It's a very small world.

HASH(0x8c8ed63c) étoiles sur 5 An amazing fiber artist 18 mai 2013
Par carolyn m. - Publié sur Amazon.com

A visually stunning book --it includes numerous color plates of her work. I found the "miniature" weavings to be the most appealing. Also, the book covers her beginnings in weaving, at Yale, and how her travels/ study of weaving in South America and Mexico influenced her work. This is one of my favorite fiber art books, one I keep going back to (I am a weaver myself)
