Brian Rutenberg. Work by Brian Rutenberg. Text by Martica Sawin, foreword by Gregory Amenoff. Radius Books, 2010. 164pp., 85 colour and 15 b&w illustrations, 11x11".
"Brian Rutenberg’s paintings reinvigorate and revitalize the medium. Raised in the South Carolina lowlands, Rutenberg has lived and worked in New York for the past 20 years.
His work elicits a profoundly visceral experience as he reinvests abstraction with a sense of spirituality.
This volume is the most comprehensive presentation of his work to date; it includes an essay by critic and writer Martica Sawin and a foreword by artist and writer Gregory Amenoff."
