Featuring essays from prominent scholars, including representatives of both the Henry Moore Foundation and the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, the catalog's richly illustrated text delves into each artist's motivation and methodology, and the parallels between them, in particular, the inspiration both took from nature and organic forms, such as bones and seashells. The publication serves as an essential companion to the exhibition. In addition to explorations of the artists' studios that provide further insight into their working methods, the catalog presents drawings, paintings, and sculpture that illustrate the organic roots of Modernism developed independently, yet concurrently, by O'Keeffe and Moore. Thematic sections of the catalogue include Surrealism and War; The Artists' Studios; Bones; Stones; Seashells, Flowers, and Internal/External Forms; and A Landscape of Forms. Essay topics include Moore and Modernism in America, D.H. Lawrence and the Modernism of O'Keeffe and Moore, and Looking Within: The Hidden Forms of Henry Moore and the publication will also include a comparative chronology of the lives and careers of the two artists.
Reframing image fragments from postcards, John Stezaker's series Crossing Over (2005-13) focuses on the incidental micro-narratives of life that are often overlooked in these everyday objects.
Celebrated artist John Stezaker is widely known for his innovative approach to found photographic imagery. Building upon the corresponding The 3rd Person Archive series, the image fragments in this volume span the history of postcard production. Moving from the Victorian era to the postwar period and black and white to colour imagery, Stezaker focuses on the female figure as well as notions of return and crossing back.
Exploring time and memory, Crossing Over frames seemingly minor details, such as the figures passing on a street corner or conversing on a park bench, as well as the marks left by the physical movement of the images themselves.
