Imants Tillers and the 'Book of Power'
"Imants Tillers is recognised as one of Australia's most intriguing and compelling artists. This monograph, the first major publication on his art, provides an overview of his career and a detailed introduction to the works he has produced since 1981, collectively known as the Book of Power. The text shows how, as Tillers reflected on and became engaged in the distribution and circulation of visual imagery, he developed into a true artist of the age of information." "He was initially interested in installation and conceptual art and participated in several performances - he assisted Christo and Jeanne-Claude in the famous "wrapping" of Little Bay, Sydney in 1969. However, since the early 1970s Tillers has been interested primarily in painting, taking his images from other sources - especially reproductions in catalogues and art magazines - and then presenting them, whole or in part, in new combinations or in altered forms."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
