Presents the textile sculpture of American artist Norma Minkowitz (b. 1937). With illustrated essays by David Revere McFadden, Jane Adlin, and Kathleen Whitney. Includes a chronology with exhibitions and collections history, and many full-color examples of Minkowitz's work. She "has taken textile art to new heights. Her shellac-stiffened and painted crochet sculptures emerge as unique and brilliant forms. All of Minkowitz's sculptures are remarkable for their ability to evoke what are seemingly opposing visual sensations. The psychological complexities of her work, the observation of human behavior, and the metaphorical containment, fuse into the beautiful forms she creates, making some of the most important sculptures of our time."
