The literary dimension of R.H. Quaytman's serial work, the combination of mechanical reproduction techniques with conceptual art traditions, the invariable use of the same support (plywood panels standing on beveled edges), the limited range of formats (eight, defined according to the golden spiral) and stylistic modes (photographic-based silkscreening, optical patterns, small oils) and above all the the artist’s reflection on the possibility and place of painting today are some of the topics explored by essayists Jarosław Suchan (director, Muzeum Sztuki w Łodzi) and Marta Dziewańska (curator, Kunstmuseum Bern), and addressed in the two interviews with the artist conducted by Daniel Muzyczuk. The book will be illustrated with a wide selection of images of the works, including many installation views testifying to the key role installation choreography plays in the presentation of Quaytman’s art.
Published in association with the Muzeum Sztuki w Łodzi and distributor Koenig Books, this publication was conceived in close collaboration with the artist and designed by the Polish studio Novici (Marcin Nowicki and Katarzyna Nestorowicz).
