Includes bibliographical references (pages 240-243).
Reproducing over 200 works on paper from the past 50 years, this retrospective publication presents a crucial part of British sculptor Phyllida Barlow's (born 1944) oeuvre. Designed by Japanese graphic designer Takaaki Matsumoto, the book will be published alongside the Hauser & Wirth London exhibition opening in late May 2014. A never-before-published interview between the artist and Hans Ulrich Obrist provides insight into drawings that are not preparations but, rather, daily exercises done before, during and after the creation of her sculptures. While the works on paper range in style, they demonstrate a consistency in color and form in their exploration of ideas related to structures, architectural interiors and urban surroundings. Barlow's works on paper date back to the early 1960s when she was a student at Chelsea College of Art in London.
