James Turrell: A Retrospective is a beautiful monograph showcasing nearly 50 years of his celebrated career. Throughout his artistic life, Turrell has created poetic and mesmerising installations that play with light, shadows, colour and perception. The catalogue accompanies recent shows at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Guggenheim in New York and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
This beautiful monograph explores every aspect of Turrell's career from his early geometric light projections, the prints he later made about those projections, preparatory drawings , numerous installations and light chambers, as well as his recent work with holograms. It also takes an in-depth look at the artist's life work, Roden Crater, a naked eye observatory in an extinct volcano on the edge of the Painted Desert in Arizona.
Featuring specially commissioned new photographer by Florian Holzher as well as plans an drawings, this book is highly recommended for Turrell's devotees.
