Excerpt from Rambles About Morley, With Descriptive and Historic Sketches: Also, an Account of the Rise and Progress of the Woollen Manufacture in This Place; Illustrated With a Plan of Morley, and Numerous Engravings As to the success of our endeavour to produce a volume of local matter, which should combine useful information with intellectual pleasure, we leave it to the judgment of those of our readers who are acquainted with the place of which we write. We have not indulged in speculations, gratifying perhaps to the Antiquarian, but dry and unmeaning to the general reader; on the other hand we have aimed at giving a plain and simple account of the place, which can be read and understood by all. We are well aware of the many shortcomings in this work, but in extenuation we may say, that we have done the best we could with the materials at our command.

Kiki Smith

Author: Wendy Weitman
Publisher: The Museum of Modern Art
ISBN: 0870705830
Release Date: 2003
Genre: Art

"Kiki Smith: Prints, Books, and Things is the most complete survey yet of Smith's printed art. Published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the winter of 2003-4, it contains 137 color plates documenting her work in the medium, beginning with her first screenprint, made in 1980, and including works that were in progress as this book was being written. Also featured is an eight-page printed work that Smith created especially for the book. An innovative experimenter, Smith has investigated many kinds of printmaking, from traditional techniques such as etching and lithography to newer, simpler processes such as rubber stamp and photocopy, not to mention artist's books and multiples including blankets and fabric dolls. The reader aware of her sculpture will find much to recognize in these works, with their imagery of the body, of animals and birds, and of the iconography of women, but her printed art develops these themes in ways unique to itself - as Wendy Weitman, Curator in the Museum's Department of Prints and Illustrated Books and the organizer of the exhibition, explains in a comprehensive essay. Kiki Smith: Prints, Books, and Things offers a crucial record of an underacknowledged side of Smith's work. In doing so, it argues powerfully for the importance of printmaking in contemporary art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
