This is the first-ever book-length exploration of the work of Max Uhlig, one of the most admired and influential contemporary artists. Representing a cross section of his forty-five-year career, the book reproduces nearly one hundred and fifty paintings and drawings, including portraits and landscapes, that thrill with their sparkling colors and characteristic web of lines and brushstrokes. These lines and dots in Uhlig’s paintings take viewers beyond the surface, generating impressions of the disembodied traces of essential appearance. Beautifully reproduced, these artworks taken together reveal a remarkable career, and an unforgettable artistic sensibility.
