Alison Watt by Don Paterson
Book DescriptionBritish artist Alison Watt (b. 1965) creates monumental paintings depicting richly draped fabric. These canvases show closely cropped folds, gathers, tucks, and creases----all sensuously developed from a selective palette of white, grey, burnt sienna, cadmium red, and yellow. The National Gallery's seventh Associate Artist, Watt has been working in a studio near the permanent collection. This proximity to masterpieces she has long admired has concentrated her focus on the tradition of drapery in western art and inspired her dramatically abstracted reinterpretations. This beautifully designed and illustrated book presents her most recent series of powerful, large-scale paintings. In an essay featuring photographs of Watt at work in the gallery studio, Colin Wiggins reviews the artist's creative process. Also included is a new piece written by celebrated Scottish poet Don Paterson that responds to these works.

Train Songs, Paperback (May 2014)» View all books by Don Paterson
Wordsworth was the first laureate of locomotives: in fact he railed against them, and against the consequent opening up of the Lakes to holiday hordes ('On the Projected Kendal and Windermere Railway'). His dismay was echoed down the decades by disturbed ruralists, and yet the train has become part of our psychic landscape.
