Art Objects: Essays on Ecstasy and Effrontery

Front Cover
Knopf Canada, 1996 - Literature - 192 pages
1 Review
In ten interlocking essays, the acclaimed author of Written on the Body and Art & Lies reveals art as an active force in the world--neither elitist nor remote, available to those who want it and affecting those who don't. Original, personal, and provocative, these essays are not so much a point of view as they are a way of life, revealing "a brilliant and deeply feeling artist at work" (San Francisco Chronicle).
