Drawings beyond paper, pencil, and frame

The most comprehensive publication on the American artist’s work to date

American artist Michelle Stuart (*1938 in California) is internationally known for a rich and diverse body of work stemming from her lifelong interest in the natural world and the cosmos. Working in drawing, sculpture, photography, video, installation and site-specific earthworks, she has pursued a subtle and responsive dialogue with nature, distinct from the epic gestures of American Land Art. Spanning the period from the late 1960s to the present day, this publication encompasses a varied and unconventional range of media, while highlighting Stuart’s major contribution to the practice of drawing. During the seventies she won recognition for her monumental drawings made outdoors, which have the characteristics of specific sites ingrained in their surfaces. Other works respond to the Nazca Lines in Peru, the Uffington White Horse in the UK and New Mexican petroglyphs, pushing our understanding of drawing beyond the page. Featuring three new essays and an interview with Stuart, this publication will be the definitive resource on the pioneering artist’s work to date.
