Sculptors Drawing


Published by Aspen Art Museum. Text by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Anne Chu, Teresita Fernández, Keith Edmier, Thomas Scheibitz, Tobias Rehberger, Katy Schimert, Ricky Swallow.

Although drawing is often thought of as a preparatory medium for sculptors, oftentimes it is, in fact, a more primary mode of expression and investigation. Featuring works on paper by Matthew Barney, Anne Chu, Keith Edmier, Teresita Fernández, Jorge Pardo, Tobias Rehberger, Thomas Scheibitz, Katy Schimert and Ricky Swallow, this concise volume examines the different ways these sculptors use drawing—both as a compliment to and a divergence from their artistic practice. In addition to a handsome plate section, it features short texts by each of the artists on the function of drawing in his or her work, condensed biographies, and an insightful introductory essay by the Aspen Art Museum’s Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson.
