Architectural and printing motifs pervade Argentine painter Guillermo Kuitca's latest work, surveyed in this hardcover volume
This book debuts two new painting series by Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca (born 1961) that feature the artist's distinctive melding of abstraction and figuration --The Family Idiot and Missing Pages. Evoking the complex geometries and layered information of architectural plans and cartographic maps, Kuitca's theatrical paintings explore themes of dislocation: The Family Idiot draws from Jean-Paul Sartre's three-volume study of Gustave Flaubert, while the 18-part wall piece Missing Pages evokes the physical process of book printing, specifically the unexpected combinations of images that ensue during pagination.Published on the occasion of Guillermo Kuitca's summer 2019 solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, this catalog includes two richly illustrated essays by acclaimed art critic Christian Viveros-Fauné and writer and artist Chris Wiley. An extensive plates section and installation views present readers with an immersive experience of the exhibition and the artist's works.
