The recent work of Belgian abstract artist Yves Zurstrassen is explored in depth in this handsome volume, designed in close collaboration with the artist himself
The decade of work produced between 2010 and 2019 by Belgian abstract painter Yves Zurstrassen (b. 1956) is the focus of this beautifully designed and illustrated book. Although he originally studied graphic art, Zurstrassen was inspired by Abstract Expressionists such as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning to pursue painting. The book's essays delve into the artist's process and offer a critical analysis of the work. Also included are a detailed biography and insightful, informal conversations with the artist. Featuring full-page illustrations of Zurstrassen's recent work, the book situates the artist both within abstract art and the broader context of contemporary painting.
