A monograph on the American artist Mary Frank, concentrating on her paintings of the last 15 years. This book features an essay by an art historian and reproduces more than 50 of Mary Frank's paintings. From Booklist Frank's powerfully expressive paintings depict dreamscapes charged with a vibrant and seemingly molecular mix of colors light and dark in which archetypal human and animal figures seem to well up from the unconscious to hover eloquently if enigmatically like petroglyphs or cave paintings. Distinguished art historian Nochlin discusses Frank's arresting large-scale triptychs and magnetic smaller paintings with undisguised passion, calling Frank "a major figure in American art," and praising her lyrical evocation of "deep emotion." Drawing on myth and a lexicon of organic imagery, Frank gives supple form to her unsettling perception of the symbiotic nature of creation and destruction and boldly explores humankind's often contradictory perception of its place in the natural order. This handsomely produced retrospective volume showcases 15 years worth of work and presents Frank in all her painterly poeticalness. Donna Seaman Copyright © American Library Association.
