This is a superbly illustrated survey of the career-to-date of Gwenn Thomas, whose work explores the role of photography in painting. A survey of Gwenn Thomas' work from the late 1970s to the present, this book traces the artist's ongoing exploration of the ever-changing role of photographic reproduction in shaping our contemporary perception of painting. As David Levi Strauss writes, "Thomas strips photography down to its most subtle properties - light writing on sensitive surfaces - by restricting its movement to pattern (position and occupier). Picture Mondrian and Maholy-Nagy playing checkers at the intersection between image and abstraction. Now imagine a game that never ends."
