Uh-Oh : Frances Stark 1991-2015
A generously illustrated book offers the first comprehensive overview of the work of the Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist Francis Stark
Frances Stark deftly deploys text, image and literary sources in her drawings, collages, paintings and video works that reflect on her roles as artist, mother, woman and teacher. Companion to an exhibition at the Hammer Museum that documents Stark's 25-year long career, this book contains 125 works in which Stark employs words and images to create provocative and self-referential works that speak to the complexities of daily life. The catalogue covers all periods of her work from her early carbon drawings to intricate collages and mixed-media paintings to the more recent work, which includes PowerPoint slide shows, video, performance, and Instagram photographs.
This book includes full-page detailed images that provide an insight into the highly tactile and complex nature of Stark's work. Filled with high-quality reproductions and thoughtful commentary, this book is the definitive resource on Stark's accomplished, varied and affecting body of work.
