      Description
      In this beautifully executed, concertina-fold book, Allen Jones RA explores the human form and how painting on a figure is a vastly different process, and has vastly different results, to painting from a figure. The first half of the book features detail photography of the artist's sculpture series Waiting on Table. The second half concertinas out to reveal the front and back of one of Jones's most prominent sculptures, A Muse, which can also be displayed as a wall hanging. For many years as a student, Jones had to draw from casts of Greek and Roman sculptures. Over time he developed a reverence for their idealized bodies, heightened by the tactile purity of the white marble. It seemed sacrilegious to him, therefore, to discover later that the marble was often painted over with colour. Painting on a figure is quite different from painting the figure? is an observation that Jones has grown to embrace, and one that has greatly informed his practice. Like the Romans, Jones has discovered that colour matters. Jones was elected a Royal Academician in 1986. He is one of Britain's most distinguished artists from the pioneering Pop Movement, whose paintings and sculptures are held in many important international collections, including: Tate Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, the Museum of 20th-Century Art in Vienna, the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. Colour Matters is one of a collection of four artist's books by Allen Jones that Black Dog Press is releasing in September 2022.
      Bio

      A pioneer of the Pop Movement, Jones's many accolades include representing the UK at the Paris Biennale in 1963, where he received the Prix des Jeunes Artistes, and being elected a Royal Academician in 1986. There have been several prominent solo exhibitions of his work over the past 55 years, including: the 1978/79 painting and sculpture retrospective of his work at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool and the Serpentine Gallery, London; the 1995 retrospective of his complete graphic works at the Barbican Art Gallery in London, which for three years toured the world under the auspices of the British Council; and the 2007?8 shows where Jones's work was exhibited simultaneously at Tate Britain and The Royal Academy of Arts. To mark the artist's 75th birthday in 2012, a large, retrospective exhibition entitled Off the Wall, featuring sculptures, paintings, prints and drawings, toured through Europe, going on to tour venues in South America in 2015. In addition, a 2014/15 Royal Academy of Arts retrospective presented his work on thematic lines. Alongside his paintings and sculptures, which are held by many of the world's most revered art institutions, Jones has worked on large-scale commissions for a host of prestigious organizations and architects. These include mural projects in Basle, Zurich and London, and monumental sculptures in London, Hong Kong, Shanghai and China for the likes of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Yuzi Paradise Sculpture Park and Allen & Overy.

      Description
      Allen Jones RA's 52-page book On the Road: Parking Markings takes the reader on a graphic visual journey by road. Since roads were first bisected by a white line, a pictorial language has evolved that, in classic parlance, is the first or Primitive phase in ever-developing visual vocabulary, says Jones. Parking markings were introduced during my final years as a student. Produced with stencils, these marks are enlivened by human error and chance. Because of increasing traffic during the 1960s a change was needed. Yellow represented a new and Classical phase, telling us what we should NOT do, the artist continues. Familiarity breeds contempt and by the 1990s the problem required desperate measures. Red, the colour of danger, anger and hell marked a third, Baroque phase in the developing language of road marking. During the 1950s we were asked politely  in white. During the 1960s we were told in yellow. During the 1990s we were shouted at in red. Now the air is blue. Jones was elected a Royal Academician in 1986. He is one of Britain's most distinguished artists from the pioneering Pop Movement, whose paintings and sculptures are held in many important international collections, including: Tate Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, the Museum of 20th-Century Art in Vienna, the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

      Description
      This book features exclusive photography by the renowned artist Allen Jones RA. These images enable the shadows of his celebrated sculptures to become works of art in their own right, revealing a viewpoint previously unseen or unnoticed. Intermingled with views of the Jones's own home and household objects, Shadows is an intimate, beautiful and playful 60-page publication featuring previously unseen work by the artist. Light can transform a solid object into an insubstantial shadow, not a copy but a unique slant on the real thing, says Jones. Domestic shadows are anchored to their place but out of doors they can come alive seemingly of their own volition. Dependent on the sun and moon for their existence these shadow drawings will exactly repeat themselves only once a year weather permitting. Jones was elected a Royal Academician in 1986. He is one of Britain's most distinguished artists from the pioneering Pop Movement, whose paintings and sculptures are held in many important international collections, including: Tate Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, the Museum of 20th-Century Art in Vienna, the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

      Description
      Taking the form of a composition book, a classic style of American notebook. Written English is an Allen Jones RA artwork in book form. Over 40 pages, Jones playfully explores the English language, and its use? and misuse. Conquest and trade allowed the English language to become the World's lingua franca, perhaps because its phonetic and grammatical structure is more pliable than most languages, says Jones. Global, popular culture, advertising and newspapers have shown a creativity that has enriched and extended our English usage.? Jones was elected a Royal Academician in 1986.

      Description
      Federico Solmi: Escape Into The Metaverse examines the work of Federico Solmi, a leading practitioner in the genre of new media art. As a narrative and figurative artist, Solmi utilises lurid colours and satire to portray a dystopian vision of contemporary society, highlighting the contradictions and fallibilities that characterize our time. Employing video, painting, drawing, sculpture, sound and digital game design, he creates a carnivalesque virtual reality with historical and present-day world leaders animated by computer script and motion capture performance in a critique of Western society's obsession with power. Inspired by real events and fabricated myths, Solmi explores, re-interprets and concocts celebrated moments in history. As reconfigured narratives, these social and political commentaries disrupt the mythologies that underpin Western society, revealing its ties to nationalism, colonialism, religion and consumerism. The book documents Solmi's unique process of melding traditional art practices and digital technologies in a case study of his most ambitious video-painting to date, The Bathhouse (2020). Pioneering new modes of cultural production and art experience afforded by the metaverse, Solmi's absurd rewriting of past and present merge dark humor and a sense of the grotesque in a virtual world that indicts our own reality. Solmi was born in 1973 to a working-class family in Bologna, Italy. He is self-trained and self-educated. In 1999, he moved to Brooklyn, New York, to pursue his career. His perspective reflects his outlook as a cultural voyeur, questioning the nationalistic and revisionist American mythologies that are often presented as fact. In 2003, Solmi began to experiment with the tools of video game design, fascinated by the parallel universe made possible by 3D graphics, which he saw as a structure to create narrative video sequences using drawings and paintings. Every visual texture is painted and scanned on the computer up to three times to achieve the intentional flickering effect. The art of Paolo Uccello, Giorgio Morandi and Giorgio di Chirico serve as references for his visual compositions, while the writings of Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and Oriana Fallaci serve as inspiration for his social and political commentary.

      Description
      Leon Polk Smith: Big Form, Big Space accompanies the recent exhibition of the same name at the Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG), Vancouver (2021) and its extended presentation at Palm Springs Art Museum, California (2022), focusing on paintings and works on paper that chart a key moment in Smith?s career. Born outside Chickasha, in what would become Oklahoma, Smith grew up in a farming community among the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations. During the 1950s, his work moved away from the Eurocentric impulses of his formative years to introduce and connect to themes, ideas, forms and conditions present in his rural upbringing and personal identity. Including critical essays by Barry Schwabsky and Ashley Holland, this extensively illustrated publication features a series of wide-ranging readings of Smith?s work, examining the complexities surrounding issues of context, time and identity within an appreciation of his place in hard-edge modernist abstraction. Leon Polk Smith (1906?1996) holds a unique place in the tradition of American geometric abstract painting, heralded for his lifelong commitment to simple shapes, brilliant colours and intense compositions. Since his first solo exhibition in New York City in 1941, he has been the subject of numerous retrospectives, with work included in major collections, such as the Art Institute of Chicago; Brooklyn Museum; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, New York; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; and Whitney Museum of American Art.

      Description
      A fascinating and long-overdue study of the artistss work spanning five decades of her diverse practice, this comprehensive and thought-provoking book provides an overview of Marianness oeuvre. It also creates dialogues between different periods of her work by presenting them alongside one another ? many shown this way for the first time in print. From her spontaneous, gesturally abstract drawings of the 1970s, to her bolder, more defined, large-scale drawings that gained public attention at the 1980 Venice Biennale, to her lesser-known sculptural and photographic works, to the wall painting created for Kunstmuseum Basel in 2018 ? this book spans the artistss creative scope. The characteristic linear forms that underscore Marianness practice come from the meditative process of drawing she developed in her lifetime, whereby she externalised her personal experiences onto paper. Marianne Eigenheer documents beautifully how the artist created a highly distinctive and recognizable visual language by working in this way throughout her career. The book also features a selection of essays by a diverse group of writers that discuss and explore the different aspects of Marianne's practice, shining a light on her work as artist, writer, curator and teacher.
      Bio

      Marianne Eigenheer (1945-2018, Swiss) was a renowned artist and active academic whose work has been exhibited across Europe, Australia and the United States. As a child, Marianness parents had aspirations for her to become a pianist, although she wanted to become a composer. Instead, she began drawing and painting after finishing school and went to art college in Lucerne, Switzerland. Marianness work was featured in Achille Bonito Oliva and Harald Szeemannss seminal Venice Biennale exhibition Aperto 80 in 1980, as well as in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany ? Bonner Kunstverein, Volker Diehl, Galerie Volker Diehl, Zeppelinmuseum and Ludwig Forum fur Internationale Kunst; in the US ? Holly Solomon Gallery and the Swiss Institute in New York; and at the Manege Central Exhibition Hall in St Petersberg, Russia, Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) in Australia, and the Meguro Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan. Her work has also been exhibited in Switzerland at sic! Raum für Kunst in Lucerne, von Bartha in Basel, and at the Kunstmuseum Basel in 2018. During her academic career, Marianne was Professor and Director of the Institute for Curatorship and Education at Edinburgh College of Art, where she was granted an honorary professorship in 2009, having worked previously at several universities and art colleges, including the University of Art and Design, Offenbach, and the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart.

      Description
      Contrary to what one might imagine, there is no such thing as an experience designer. At least not in the sense that we might talk of an individual recognized as such. To make experiences is to be human. Shaman, architect, food engineer, you name it, they are all experience designers. Informed by an understanding of people's needs and wants, our stories, our rituals, our myths, the beautifully designed experience has the power to transform lives. The Experience Book is an ode to that power. Essentially, it is a book about time and how we use it to design and make experiences that define the spaces we live, work and play in. Divided into a guidebook and a sourcebook, it begins by explaining what it is about the human mind that so deeply feasts on the notion of the experience, and then employs this knowledge to suggest a method or framework for designing experiences. The guidebook done, the sourcebook serves as inspiration for the art of experience design, with precedents drawn from the past 35,000 years? worth of transformative experience making. The first publication about the attributes that together make what is fast becoming a recognized discipline, The Experience Book is beautifully presented. Comprised of a wonderfully eclectic range of written forms, illustrated by a fantastic mix of drawings and photography, and backed by historical and contemporary examples from the worlds of architecture, branding, fashion, music, art, sport and business, it introduces the maker of experiences as part ethnographer, storyteller, master planner and performance artist. Challenging the orthodoxy of function, reasserting process over monument and product, delighting in the unexpected, and championing the spectator over the spectacle, this is a book for anyone interested in the power of design, be they creator, communicator or consumer.
      Bio

      Adam Scott and Dave Waddell have spent more than a decade thinking, talking and writing about the making of experiences. An architect, stone mason, designer and teacher, Adam is something of a polymath and has won a number of Cannes Lions, not least for Blackpool's Dune Grass, the tallest freestanding kinetic public art installation in the world. Along with Dave and his team at FreeState, working with some of the worldss greatest brands, urban planners, developers, architects and place activators, he has helped pioneer the concept of experience masterplanning for the likes of NIKE, Sony, Google, MTV, Manchester City Football Club, The Crown Estate, University of Glasgow, University of Melbourne, Network Rail, Transport for London and Melbourne Airport. It is an approach designed to help architects and developers properly meet the needs of the people they are designing and building for. As well as hosting the FreeState podcast, Adam's experience, knowledge and eloquent advocacy for the transformational experience make him a sought-after keynote speaker, host and judge. In addition to helping design Central Saint Martins narrative environment curriculum, Adam is a visiting lecturer and mentor at the renowned London-based arts and design college. Dave is a writer, design strategist, teacher and one-time whisky aficionado. Having spent many years writing on the side while working as a primary school teacher, he set up his own copywriting company in 2010 and cut his teeth as a design, travel and drinks writer soon after. Following a revelatory experience visiting a distillery in Islay, Scotland, he became a budding whisky enthusiast, authored Whisky: The Knowledge (2015) and was, for a time, a world whisky awards judge. Having worked with Adam since his teaching days, much of Dave's work in design is experience-based and is today largely and similarly focused on ensuring that architects and urban planners build the things that people need and want. He is co-author of House Paint & Other Stories (2014) and the architectural monograph From Now On (2020). As well as their blogs and articles, Adam and Dave collaborated on RETHINK Design Guide: Architecture for a post-pandemic world (2021). The Experience Book is their first full-length book.

      Description
      Existing histories of modern architecture typically give their highest praise to private houses and their most severe condemnation to architect-authored urban plans, often neglecting the built works that are no smaller than a single building and possibly as large as an urban block, the middle or institutional scale, where culturally significant urban transformation actually takes place. Urban architecture is a timely topic as today cities worldwide are suffering accelerated urbanization, which is often dehumanizing and destructive, especially to the unbuilt environment, airs, waters and soils. The middle or institutional scale is shown to activate and actualize latent potentials for cultural experience and environmental intelligence, allowing the city to surprise itself and delight in its discoveries. In Projecting Urbanity, David Leatherbarrow, via author-architect texts by his former doctorate students, lays out the basis for a revision of modern architecture's contribution to cities and their culture. Presenting a series of texts featuring buildings or their parts of various scales from the construction detail, to the room or garden, to ensembles within a neighborhood ? the contributors introduce concepts for contemporary and future urban architecture, together with richly indicative examples from the past several decades. While architecture cannot solve today's urban problems, it certainly has a role to play in their productive transformation, articulating opportunities for life and culture that are more humane, less wasteful, and more beautiful.
