Summary
"This comprehensive monograph on Swiss artist Pierrette Bloch (born in 1928, lives in Paris) spans her prolific output from the 1950s to today. She has developed a corpus of drawings, collages, and three-dimensional pieces whose key principles are an economy of means (ink, paper, mesh, and horsehair), the use of primary forms (dots, curls, and lines) and seriality, and the reduction to black and white. Edited by Musée Jenisch Vevey, it brings together newly commissioned essays by Julie Enckell Julliard, Pamela M. Lee, Nicolas Muller, Philippe Piguet, and Catherine de Zegher, as well as a complete biography by Laurence Schmidlin. The writers examine Bloch's singular approach to drawing, her synthetic position within postwar abstraction and minimalism, as well as her obsessive variations that explore the limits of visibility and the scale of intimacy."--Page 4 of cover.
