Sophy Rickett by Urs Stahel

Book Description

Sophy Rickett's work explores the competing forces of light and darkness in defining and articulating space, often alluding to a sense of the infinite. Made mainly at night, and often in peripheral or mundane environments, her work ponders the potential of photography to conceal as much as reveal. In both color and black & white, her photographs cohere around strong formal properties, and are often minimal in character, playing on the latent narrative possibilities of place. This book surveys Rickett's work from the mid-nineties to the present; from her early performative series through to the successive series of nocturnal landscapes, made in the UK, Italy and Japan, for which she has achieved international recognition. Sophy Rickett's work came to prominence in the late 90s, following her graduation from The Royal College of Art, London. She has exhibited widely, nationally and internationally. Selected solo shows include Alberto Peola, Turin, Italy, Nichido Contemporary Art, Tokyo, Japan, and Centre pour L'image Contemporain Saint-Gervais, Switzerland and Emily Tsingou, London. Selected Group exhibitions include: Order and Chaos, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland; Flock, Spacex Gallery, Exeter and Where are We?, Victoria & Albert Museum, London. In 2002, she was awarded the Arts Council Helen Chadwick Fellowship, Ruskin School, Oxford UK and in the same year the fellowship at the British School in Rome, Italy. She is represented by Emily Tsingou Gallery, London. She lives and works in London.

Amar Kanwar by Urs Stahel Amar Kanwar, Hardback (June 2013)

Imagine nineteen sheets of paper floating forever in the wind. Imagine the simultaneous viewing of multiple time. Imagine time that is filled with as many silences as with words. Imagine the slow gathering together of time. This book represents a moment in a life and oeuvre in flux, always branching out and converging, following a course.
