Synopsis

First published to acclaim in 2001, this classic biography is now back in print - as the art and life of Len Lye continue to fascinate readers in New Zealand and around the world. Len Lye: A Biography tells the story of an extraordinary New Zealander - a brilliant artist with an international career who never lost the informality, the energy and the independence of spirit of his South Pacific origins. Lye (1901-80) was a charismatic artist of enormous talent who became a leading figure in international modernism. He was a gifted innovator in many areas of the arts - film, painting, sculpture, photography and writing. Horrocks' exhaustive study of Lye was the result of twenty years of research and is based on interviews with many of those close to the artist, as well as on voluminous documentary sources. At the same time, Lye's colourful personality and dramatic life make this a page-turner. It places Lye, unquestionably, alongside Mansfield and Hodgkins as a great New Zealand expatriate artist. Generous illustrations give striking examples of Lye's art and a vivid sense of the man and his world.

This 2015 reprint includes a new chapter on Lye's remarkable posthumous career, which has included both controversy and triumph.
