Jennifer Bartlett, Recitative, Baldwin Gallery: Aspen Colorado, 2010

A well produced catalogue/artists' book for a 2010 exhibition at the Baldwin Gallery of Barlett's Recitative that utilised her baked enamel steel plates in a mural that stretched 158 feet around the gallery. The piece, a meditation on color and a back-to-basics research into picture-making, is presented here in bookform in a wonderful simulation of the original. Accompanied by a short essay from Kiki Jai Rai in which she places this piece in the context of a 1976 work, Rhaspody, and observes similar themes being worked out in the present volume. The book has 40 pages, at 6" x 8.5" (H), and fully extended it's 20 feet.
