'generously illustrated with examples of work from all stages of Whitten’s career, accompanied by incisive texts by art historian Richard Shiff' - Artnews

A comprehensive monograph surveys the work of Black American artist Jack Whitten

Jack Whitten is known for his swirling, mosaic-like abstractions and his innovative material experimentations, especially with acrylic paint. Resembling topographical maps, Whitten's works rely heavily on the use of geometry and rhythmic, gestural structures to induce an artistic and spiritual process that he identifies as "mapping the soul."

Focusing on pivotal developments over his six-decade career, the publication is generously illustrated with Whitten's vast body of work. Throughout the volume, art historian Richard Shiff provides critical interpretations of Whitten's painting, sculpture and artistic philosophy.
