Description: Milano: Charta, 2010. 28cm., pbk., 184pp., 152 illus., 117 in color. Summary: Whether an earth-rubbed book object infused with soil from Canyon de Chelly, or a multi-media work depicting crossroads of trade in the Yucatan, Michelle Stuartís art conveys a sense of cultural history and distant places. This intimate, visually stunning volume focuses on the artistís small sculptures and sculptural installations. Opening with a critical essay by Lucy Lippard, whose decades-long friendship with Stuart gives her unique insight into her practice, the book features journal entries interspersed among its 160 sensuous illustrations, conveying an eloquent sense of time and process. Since the early 1970s, Stuart has pioneered highly regarded approaches involving the unusual use of materials such as earth-rubbed paper and seeds as medium and subject matter. She has won international acclaim for her inquiries into nature, blending an interest in archeology, biology, cosmology, and history. Sculptural Objects provides a glimpse not only of what inspires Stuartís art making, but also of the journey a creative mind takes in solving the mysteries of being.
