Friedel Dzubas : The Size of Life
Friedel Dzubas presents the first scholarly monograph on the German-born American artist whose works display a mastery of color, light, and scale. Celebrated for his monumental, luminous color abstractions, Dzubas has nonetheless been marginalized by misclassification. Often grouped with Color Field artists of the mid-to later-twentieth century, this richly illustrated volume asserts the artist's singular ties to historical painterly handling and pictorial structure--from the animating brush work of Titian to the light-filled, narrative frescoes by Giambattista Tiepolo. Even more, Dzubas's abiding ambition to express pictorially his sources of spiritual inspiration in religious allegory and landscape mark his achievement as unique among his contemporaries.
