Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is a respected figure who has recently come to the attention of the broader public. This beautiful and celebratory book on her works is made distinctly personal by the artist's own handwritten comments, private photographs and whimsical sketches.
Niki de Saint Phalle was an eclectic artist of unbridled creativity whose entire oeuvre strives to communicate the message that art is not a linear and straightforward course of growth and perfecting, but a continuous, unavoidable quest for sensations, experienced and to be communicated to viewers, seen as an arduous but fascinating adventure.
When Niki de Saint Phalle died, the world lost not only an artist of enormous passion, but also a remarkably creative woman whose work and life were inextricably linked. Throughout her forty-year career Saint Phalle explored female roles in society and myth, basing many of her disquieting and joyful depictions on personal experience.
Chronologically arranged, this updated book takes readers from the controversial shooting paintings and her playfully voluptuous nanas to the impressive installations and wonderfully elaborate sculpture gardens such as the Tarot Garden in Tuscany, the Sun God in San Diego and the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris.
In addition to nearly 40 color and black and white private photographs, the artist’s own comments and sketches are interspersed throughout the book, providing an integral framework for understanding and appreciating her unusual talent.
