Ugo Rondinone’s Sun paintings are reproduced at unprecedented scale in a display-worthy elephant folio, published in a signed limited edition of345 copies.   New York–based, Swiss-born conceptual artist Ugo Rondinone’s Sun paintings are among his most celebrated series. Begun in 1992 and spanning three decades, the Sun works reflect Rondinone’s interests in nineteenth-century German Romanticism and Tibetan mysticism as vehicles to explore natural phenomena and interior states. Rondinone began the sun series by directing his gaze inward (a counterpoint to his contemporaneous plein air works), translating his emotional state to circular bands of watercolor on paper. To create distance between these diaristic studies and the viewer, Rondinone then altered the media and scale: expanding the Suns to more than seven feet in diameter and exchanging tremulous watercolor for seamless airbrush. Maintaining a consistent form and naming strategy—the German date of the work—Rondinone cycled through more than 435 color combinations, each specific to a day, ranging from strong contrasts to barely perceptible shifts.   Sometimes referred to as mandala works, the Sun paintings fill the viewer’s field of vision with pulsing color. At 19 x 22 inches, this elephant folio creates an intense optical experience at close range. Complete with reproductions of all 271 large works and 164 smaller canvases and prints, Ugo Rondinone: The Sun will be the most comprehensive source on the series to date.
