The first-ever comprehensive monograph on the life and work of influential British conceptual artist Bob Law. Beginning in the 1950s, inspired by the landscape, Law made his most famous works while lying on his back in a field. These seemingly simple outlines led to a minimalist exploration that spanned almost 60 years. In 1974, Law made a series of black paintings out of different combinations of dark colors. His vocabulary of elemental forms, traditional symbols and primary colors can be seen across his work; they include fields, houses, castles, chairs, crosses in red, yellow and blue. This publication brings together extensive documentation of the artist’s paintings, drawings and sculpture along with selected essays by David Batchelor, Antony Bond, Anna Lovatt, Jo Melvin, Giuseppe Panza and an interview with the artist by Richard Cork.
