            "McCahon (1919-1987) is widely recognised as an outstanding figure in twentieth century art whose ground-breaking work over four decades changed the way we see this country, while engaging intensely with questions of faith, mortality, belonging and the power of art. In this landm...ark new book, published in association with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki on the 100th anniversary of McCahons birth, celebrated writer and curator Justin Paton takes readers on a journey through the landscape of Aotearoa New Zealand, as the artist loved and painted it. From Otago to Canterbury, Takaka to Taranaki, Muriwai to Northland and many more places in between, Paton brings his curators eye to a selection of nearly 200 of McCahons paintings and drawings, including iconic and beloved works and others never before published, presented in fifteen themed sections offering fresh perspectives on McCahons abiding concerns. In elegant, responsive and deeply compelling prose, the author traces McCahons travels through New Zealand, charts his remarkable development as a painter and thinker, explores his deepening engagement with Maori culture and environmental issues, and reveals his vision of the land as a source of light, peace and spiritual sustenance"--Publisher information.

            German artist Heinz Mack has left his mark on the world through both a pioneering contribution to the question of a new concept of art that has been of fundamental importance since the postwar period, and, along with Otto Piene, as the founder of the ZERO movement, an internation...al artists' network devoted to the topics of light and movement. This book offers the first overview of Mack's philosophy of art as well as his multifaceted oeuvre. A sculptor and painter for more than sixty years, Mack has created a wide-ranging body of work, starting with the ZERO period around 1960 and continuing in the present day. As this book shows, the essential aspects of his works--including the significance of light, structure, and color--are portrayed with often surprising perspectives. The authors accompany Mack in his constant search for a new concept of art, following him from ZERO through his legendary Sahara Project--a series of installations he made in the Tunisian desert from 1962 to 1976--to his light art and most recent paintings. Throughout, they discover little-known connections to minimal art, land art, Yves Klein, and Constantin Brancusi, among others. This journey through Mack's rich oeuvre culminates in a look at his passionate plea for the idea of beauty in the twenty-first century. Containing fifty color illustrations, Heinz Mack brings a fresh perspective to this artist's extensive career.
