Interest has steadily grown in the career of the American painter Lee Lozano (1930-1999) over the last decade, specifically in her move toward conceptual art that culminated in her boycott of women for nearly the last 30 years of her life. Packed with humour, sexual imagery and a heaviness of spirit, the 31 paintings in this book are intimate works, difficult to assign to an obvious tradition of painting. Essays by Helen Molesworth and Bob Nickas further illustrate that, even when Lozano was using traditional material to make her art, her career was anything but. Published by Karma (New York).
