Summary
This is the first major publication of Mary Weatherford, who is quickly becoming one of the most prominent artists of her generation, and surveys the artist's neon paintings. Since the beginning of her career she has rooted her abstract painting in subjective experience and brought a feminist perspective to what is perhaps the defining category of modern and contemporary art, breaking down preconceived notions of scale, technical achievement, and formal progress. Weatherford accents the surface of her recent luminous paintings and installations with neon lighting fixtures to evoke the dynamic nature of city life. This beautifully illustrated book presents all of Weatherford's neon works to date, along with essays by Robert Faggen, Katy Siegel, Jennifer Peterson, and an interview with the artist.
