Emery is a long-standing member of the ISC and a former ISC Board Member. This gorgeous volume celebrates the work of New Orleans native Lin Emery’s sculpture from the 1950s to her current work on view in New York and an upcoming exhibition in her home city’s Contemporary Art Center. Philip Palmedo, who also wrote a recent article on Emery’s work for Sculpture magazine, thoroughly surveys the artists career and accomplishments.
The images of Emery’s work and that of artists who inspired her are reproduced exceptionally well, giving a visual counterpoint to Palmedo’s text. There is also extensive documentation of the artist’s career at the back of the book.
Once again, Hudson Hills Press has produced a beautiful and a much needed survey of an artist’s career.
By Philip F. Palmedo, with an introduction by John Berendt
