BeschreibungJames Croak (b. 1951), one of America's most original artists, has produced an astonishing and idiosyncratic body of work during the past 20 years. Using a variety of innovative materials and techniques, including taxidermy, latex rubber, tar, and his trademark cast dirt, he has created art of astonishing presence and feeling. The mysterious darkness of his earthen material seems to convey something of the terror and anxiety of our uncertain time, and simultaneously a sense of contemplation as an avenue to spiritual renewal.Fully illustrated, the book follows Croak's experiments with Minimalism through the art of the figure that chiefly holds his attention today. A groundbreaking essay by Thomas McEvilley places his art in historical context. Also included is an interview with the artist by Barbara J. Bloemink, executive director of the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia, which probes into the sources of Croak's powerful and compelling work.
