|A well produced catalogue/artists' book for a 2010 exhibition at the Baldwin Gallery of Barlett's Recitative that utilised her baked enamel steel plates in a mural that stretched 158 feet around the gallery. The piece, a meditation on color and a back-to-basics research into picture-making, is presented here in bookform in a wonderful simulation of the original. Accompanied by a short essay from Kiki Jai Rai in which she places this piece in the context of a 1976 work, Rhaspody, and observes similar themes being worked out in the present volume. The book has 40 pages, at 6" x 8.5" (H), and fully extended it's 20 feet.|
|In a statement inside the cover flap MaCarney explains that "...Far Horizons is the name of a traditional American quilt square, which this books adopts for its basic pattern." Stitching together panoramic landscapes from various places around the country, McCarney pays homage to these sites that provide him with moments of contemplation as well as a sense of awe at these huge American landscapes.|
This accordion includes two different directional turns which when laid out flat creates a solid sheet, precisely what one calls this publication that utilizes essentially two reading directions in one publication — I'm not sure that at the moment!
12 pages, 7" x 7" (H), extended 3' 8."

An accordion postcard booklet made to accompany a work of Horvitz's that was in Art Basel, 2013. On the reverse is an interview with Horvitz by David Senior. This publication and the piece is premised upon the artist's discovery that "in early February, the California sunset coincides with the Maldives sunrise...." Horvitz engaged his mother in this work that was based upon him wanting "...us both to watch the sun going either under or over the horizon." Horvitz moved to Maldives to realize the piece and his mother lives by the beach in California. 18 pages 6.5" x 4.25" (h), extended 3' 2.25"
Horvitz is an interesting Brooklyn-based conceptual artist and right now he's seeking participants for his latest project:
For $1 USD I will think about you for one minute. I will email you the time I start thinking, and the time I stop.
