JOHN STEZAKER

Nude and Landscape

The distinctive hand-made collages of contemporary British artist John Stezaker are most often associated with his appropriated cinematic imagery. But this new exhibition catalog focuses on his non-cinematic found-images, the sources of which he’s been mining for three decades. Published for the first time, the artist’s Bridge landscape collages and the anatomical nudes of his Fall and Expulsion series are presented. Over 40 full-color images accompany texts by curator Sid Sachs, who explores the relationship between the landscape and the nude, and artist Elizabeth Manchester, who looks at the role of “The Source” in Stezaker’s work. An inspiration for anyone interested in Stezaker’s always fresh and thought- provoking image-making.

JOHN STEZAKER

Film Stills

British artist Stezaker’s latest book comprehensively catalogs works in his series of film still collages, a project that began in 1979. The phenomenally popular series moves with Stezaker’s changing interests, using stills from classic American-period Hitchcock films as raw material before shifting towards the indistinguishable mass of 1940s and early 1950s low-budget studio films. Featuring collages based on a combination of film still excisions and superimpositions, this volume includes previously unpublished works. Bringing together Stezaker’s earliest film still collages to his most recent, this publication follows on from Ridinghouse titles Masks and Marriages, with full color illustrations accompanied by an essay and interview between David Campany and the artist.

Tabula Rasa

A small but engaging exhibition catalog on one of Britian’s great contemporary collage artists. Tabula Rasa features work made across a 32-year span elegantly uniting the central themes in the art of John Stezaker. Silkscreens on canvas from the early 1990s along with film-still collages from the 1990s and 2009 are brought together for the first time. An important overview of this master collage artist whose work centers around the notion of screens, voids and cut-outs. An essay by Michael Bracewell, ‘The Space Between’, looks at the connections between the 13 selected works. Includes detailed installation views from Stezaker’s recent exhibition at The Approach, London.

JOHN STEZAKER

Celebrated for his brilliant use of old film stills, portraits, postcards and other found imagery, John Stezaker engages with this exquisitely selected found material through inversion, excision, incision, fusion and accidental damage. In this extensive monograph/exhibition catalog, Stezaker focuses on the dialectics innate in the work; life and death, seeing and blindness, male and female, love and betrayal, portrait and landscape, and more. Included are works ranging from 1977 up to the most recent series from 2010, introducing lesser-known groups such as ‘Sublimes’ and ‘Lost Tracks’ alongside his famous ongoing series including ‘Masks’ and ‘Marriages’. The largest monographic catalogue on Stezaker to date, the publication features texts by Dawn Ades and Michael Bracewell and a conversation between the artist and Daniel Herrmann and Christophe Gallois, with over 80 images of the artists’ work.

JOHN STEZAKER

Silkscreens

For the first time, this large-format volume brings together John Stezaker’s unique silkscreen woks executed between 1977 and 1994. Stezaker is best known for his intimate collages of film stills, postcards and other found imagery; these mid- to large-scale silkscreens add a new, fascinating perspective to the perception of this inventive British artist. While this body of work seems to contrast with the collages, in fact it uses many of the same techniques, like cutting out, cropping, slicing, over-laying and repetition, and create the dark, cinematic feeling, alternately menacing and satirical, that pervades Stezaker’s work. Over 65 images accompany a comprehensive essay by Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith.

JOHN STEZAKER

Crossing Over

Celebrated artist John Stezaker is widely known for his innovative approach to found photographic imagery. Building upon the corresponding 3rd Person Archive series, the image fragments in this volume span the history of postcard production. Moving from the Victorian era to the postwar period and black and white to colour imagery, Stezaker focuses on the female figure, notions of return and crossing back.

Exploring time and memory, Crossing Over frames seemingly minor details, such as the figures passing on a street corner or conversing on a park bench, as well as the marks left by the physical movement of the images themselves.

Reprinted to full-scale, 65 image fragments in this artist project are collected for the first time here.

Stockwell Depot

1967–79

Founded in 1967, Stockwell Depot heralded the emergence of the London artists’ studio movement and gained international recognition as a center for British abstraction. For over 25 years, this disused former brewery in South London functioned as both cooperative studio and exhibition space. Artists associated with the Depot—Roland Brener, Jennifer Durrant, David Evison, Katherine Gili, Peter Hide and Roelof Louw, among many others—held differing and often competing attitudes toward art. The ambitious work made and shown at the Depot tells the story of late modernism in Britain, tracing a period full of formal experimentation and critical debate. Incorporating interviews with 10 artists alongside a major essay by curator Sam Cornish, this is the first catalog to examine the artists’ activities within a historical context and track their development through the Depot’s pivotal annual exhibitions. With interviews by curators David Waterworth and Sam Cornish and preface by curator Jon Wood.
