Maria Bartuszova (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This beautiful book on Slovak artist, Maria Bartuszova (1936-1996)

will introduce readers to the ethereal and other-worldly forms that

dominate her oeuvre as well as exploring her influence in a broader

global and political context. Discovering her talent in Prague in the

ceramic studios at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design,

Bartuszova went on to pioneer the techniques used in experimental

and abstract plaster casting. Creating unique methods such as

'gravistimulated' and 'pneumatic' casting, Bartuszova defined the

world of sculpture on her own terms. From rain drops and eggs, to

parts of the human body, Bartuszova was interested biomorphology

and how she could use the organic nature of casting in plaster to

create simultaneously solid and delicate works.

With around 100 works, many rarely exhibited before in the UK,

this major retrospective will highlight the abstract sculptures and

experimental methods of Bartuszova's beautifully contorted and

organic shapes and forms, with this exquistite and accessible catalogue

bringing her work to a wider audience.

Celebrating the fragile and corporeal, the soft and the solid; this

book will provide the perfect introduction to the artist followed by

seminal texts to recognise the artist's legacy of experimental and

abstract sculptural works produced predominantly in the context of

socialist Czechoslovakia.
