Cadillac Ranch - art installation - Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels

Cadillac Ranch is not a ranch but a public art installation and sculpture in Amarillo, Texas, USA. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels, who were a part of the art group Ant Farm. It consists of what were (when originally installed during 1974) either older running used or junk Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs: the tailfins) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
Chip Lord and Doug Michels were architects; Marquez was an art student at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. According to Chip Lord, “Ant Farm was founded as an alternative architectural practice, kind of an experiment in an attempt to subvert normal corporate ways of doing architecture.”

To accompany Ireland's first solo exhibition in London, Ridinghouse published David Ireland: Sculptures, Paintings, Drawings.

An introduction to the work of this artist, this publication also includes an essay by Kenneth Baker, art critic of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Neo-expressionism A. R. Penck

Ralf Winkler, alias A. R. Penck, Mike Hammer, T. M., Mickey Spilane, Theodor Marx, «a. Y.» or just «Y» (5 October 1939 – 2 May 2017) was a German painter, printmaker, sculptor, and jazz drumme
Penck was born in Dresden, Germany. In his early teens he took painting and drawing lessons with Jürgen Böttcher, known by the pseudonym Strawalde, and joined with him to form the renegade artists’ group Erste Phalanx Nedserd (de) (“Dresden” spelled backward). He later worked for a year as a trainee draftsman at the state advertising agency in Dresden. After failing to gain admission to the fine-arts academies in Dresden and East Berlin, Penck worked for several years as a stoker, a newspaper deliverer, a margarine packer and a night watchman.
Penck later studied together with a group of other neo-expressionist painters in Dresden. He became one of the foremost exponents of the new figuration alongside Jörg Immendorff, Georg Baselitz and Markus Lüpertz. Under the East German communist regime, they were watched by the secret police and were considered dissidents. In the late 1970s they were included in shows in West Berlin and were seen as exponents of free speech in the East. Their work was shown by major museums and galleries in the West throughout the 1980s. They were included in a number of important shows including the famous Zeitgeist exhibition in the well-known Martin Gropius Bau museum and the important New Art show at the Tate in 1983.

Contemporary abstract sculpture Mark di Suvero

Marco Polo «Mark» di Suvero (born September 18, 1933) is an abstract expressionist sculptor and 2010 National Medal of Arts recipient.
«Mark di Suvero's work is the epitome of modern sculpture, which consists of unconventional materials, forms, and approaches. Assembling his works from wood and steel, he created what he referred to as „sculptural structuralism.“ These three-dimensional constructions were structures that consisted of angled beams intersecting others, sometimes with spiral elements. Such „gestures-in-space“ were related to two-dimensional Abstract Expressionist gestural abstraction and action painting — a period of art-making that immediately preceded the artist's most creative period. As di Suvero's worked developed, it became more architectural and often became, or was commissioned as, public sculptures.»

Tsuruko Yamazaki - Gutai group - Contemporary Japanese art

Tsuruko Yamazaki
Born in 1925, Ashiya, Hyogo, Japan
Tsuruko Yamazaki was the only woman artist who remained a member of the Gutai Art Association from its founding to its disbandment. Shortly after joining the Association, she produced glittering works using tin and zinc plates. Seeing her works, Michel Tapié, a French art critic who supported Gutai, suggested that she should paint on canvas, because those metals were not sufficiently durable. Around the end of 1950s, she began painting on canvas using bright primary colors. The work titled by a figure, displayed at her solo exhibition in 1963 held at Gutai Pinacotheca, is highlighted by a cloud-like shape, which became the title of the work. This work is lively and full of energy, with dynamic stripes running diagonally and colorful shapes and lines floating above the painting surface. In this oil painting, the artist demonstrates the powerful brightness that she had previously found in metal materials.
