NEW YORK, NY.- Marc Straus
announced the release of Jeanne Silverthornes first limited-edition monograph, on the occasion of her upcoming exhibition on view Jan 9Feb 10, 2019.
This comprehensive, fully illustrated, hard-cover catalogue assembles Silverthornes remarkable oeuvre for the first time, through 220 pages of more than 90 color illustrations that explore works and exhibitions over four decades.
Drawing on Silverthornes historic archive of transparencies and newly commissioned photographs, this catalogue focuses on the seminal 1994 Untitled (Chandelier), and the 2018 Frankenstein work, both of which comprise the exhibition, and further explores central tenets of her work, such as language and her studio environment.
The catalogue also contains critical essays by art historians and critics Glenn Adamson and Sue Canning. Also an interview with Saul Ostrow, critic and friend who has known the artist for more than thirty years.
Designed by Marc Straus Director Ken Tan, the book design features a unique glow-in-the-dark cover where the page edges illuminate in the dark. The special edition features a second distinct set of content written notes and drawings executed entirely by the artists own hand printed within the pages in invisible glow-in-the-dark ink.
