Product description

From Booklist

Kiefer is an international art star and a German master of scorched and scummy stuff who deploys a prodigious vision on an enormous scale. Curator Auping presents a superb introduction to Kiefer's work since the 1960s in a book accompanying a widely traveling exhibit that is organized around the artist's philosophical underpinnings. Born in 1945, Kiefer makes art in the wake of World War II that represents a constant struggle between the burdens of history and the quest for spiritual redemption. The viewer must decide whether it's bombast or humble desire that leads him to explore and embrace the universe in paintings and sculpture that attempt to corral science and serpents, angels and sperm, kabbalah and cosmology. Kiefer's world is famously gray, typified by his extensive use of lead as a symbol of ambiguity, alchemy, and human potential. Another recurring theme is the book as icon, vessel, and transformative object. Auping's reverent essay and his Q&A with Kiefer steer clear of personality and stick close to the work. Steve Paul
