Thomas Desmet & Stella Lohaus (Eds.)
German-born artist Bernd Lohaus (1940–2010) has long been recognized for his minimalist sculptures and paintings. Studying under Joseph Beuys in the 1960s, Lohaus quickly became part of the avant-garde art scene in Europe. He moved to Antwerp early in his career, and lived and worked there until his death. Because his signature materials were massive, raw wood installations and chalked words, it was quite surprising when a catalog filled with more than three hundred drawings and watercolors of flowers by Lohaus was discovered. The simple studies, always one flower per page, began in 1963 and continued until his death in 2010. This complete chronology of work, presented in year order, moves from a full facsimile of Lohaus’s sketchbooks to full-page single works. Thoughtful essays are included by Catherine Mayeur, Baudouin Oosterlynck, Manfred Pernice, Narcisse Tordoir, Gérard Traquandi, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Philippe Van Snick, and James Welling.

Painting primarily onto salvaged plywood sheets, leaving areas raw and exposed, Bill Lynch (1960–2013) created a lucid body of work that draws on a wide variety of sources—from nature to folk and indigenous art to Asian calligraphic forms to religious and mythological motifs. The artist’s vested interest in Chinese painting is apparent in his confident gestures, combining a dry lambent brush and thick, pasty paint. This first comprehensive monograph includes more than fifty vibrant paintings by Lynch, along with numerous installation views of past exhibitions. The book includes an essay by Irish critic, curator, and professor Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith; a conversation between artist Verne Dawson (Lynch’s friend) and Matthew Higgs (White Columns director); and never-before-published writings by the artist.
