Kasmin Books presents Elliott Puckette, the first major monograph on the work of the New York-based artist. Replete with color plates, reproduced source materials, and François Halard’s photography of the artist’s studio, the new and comprehensive publication investigates Puckette’s process and influences through essays by Dr. David Anfam and Stephanie Cristello, an ode by sculptor Maya Lin, and an in-depth interview with the artist. The artist’s works are positioned in relation to the art historical sources that have informed her signature use of the line—including the practices of asemic writing prominent in the work of poet and painter Henri Michaux in the 1960s, the thought-forms of Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbetter at the turn of the nineteenth century, modern figures such as Jackson Pollock and Philip Guston, and the intricate elegance of the Old Masters. The publication is distributed in the US and UK by DAP.
