Blinky Palermo: To the People of New York City

Blinky Palermo: To the People of New York City Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shortly before his death in 1977, German painter Blinky Palermo created his most significant cycle of paintings, dedicating it to the people of nyc. The work consists of 15 parts, composed from 40 painted aluminum panels arranged in combinations of cadmium red, cadmium yellow and black. Recalling Piet Mondrian's late series New York City (1941-42), and works by such American artists as Robert Ryman and Brice Marden, To the People of New York City (1976) is distinguished by its prescribed hanging and pacing, and its rhythmically changing formats, which also bring to mind the Jazz performances that Palermo sought out during his time in New York, where he had maintained a studio from 1973 to 1975. This handsome editiondiscusses To the People of New York City--today in the collection of New York's Dia Art Foundation--within this context and alongside works by his former teacher Joseph Beuys, and his long-time friends and colleagues Imi Knoebel and Gerhard Richter, among others.

Synopsis:

Over the course of his 14-year artistic career, Peter Heisterkamp, aka Peter Schwarze, aka Blinky Palermo, tirelessly probed the limits of abstract painting. Having begun his brushwork on more traditional surfaces, he shifted his activity to less conventional supports, experimenting with diverse materials and forms, exploring the relationships that can exist between the wall and the space delimited by the painting. This monograph presents a selection of Palermo's paintings, drawings and engravings, and includes examples taken from the mural he created between 1963 and 1977, the year of his death, and from his installations, among them one he did for the 1976 Venice Biennale, soon to be reconstructed for the accompanying exhibition.

Synopsis:

Text by Lynne Cooke, Anne Rorimer, Pia Gottschaller, Jaleh Mansoor.
