ART NEWS & NOTES
Ideas On Paper
(NAPSI)—For over 40 years, works by famed sculptor Strong-Cuevas have been acclaimed and enjoyed in major museums and private collections.
Now, you can have them at your fingertips. That's because Abrams Books, the premier art book publisher, has created a lavishly illustrated coffee table sized book of 190 of her color and black-and-white drawings, "Strong-Cuevas Drawings: Ideas on Paper." All the drawings have been thematically arranged and explore recurring themes of Strong-Cuevas' art. Strong-Cuevas says her work expresses thoughts about universal consciousness, space and time, and inner mediation. Best known for her sculptures made from bronze, stainless steel and aluminum, Strong-Cuevas' art often portrays the human head and plays with scale. Her drawings express the same themes.
The book also features a foreword by noted art historian and critic Jan Garden Castro, who has written extensively about Georgia O'Keeffe, Louise Bourgeois, Maya Lin, and numerous others.
Also published by Abrams is the critically acclaimed "Strong-Cuevas Sculpture: Premonitions in Retrospect," featuring photos of her sculpture.
The book is available at Barnes & Noble and online at bn.com, Amazon.com and www.abramsbooks.com.
