Inward Eye – Transcendence in Contemporary Art

“Taking its title and cue from the Wordsworth poem “”I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,”” The Inward Eye assembles together a visceral and enigmatic array of contemporary work that involves looking and seeing on different, and often quite meaningful and personal, levels. From James Lee Byars’ perfect “”Slit Moon”” and Vija Clemins engraving of the ocean surface, to Katharina Fritsch’s vanitas and Howard Hodgkins’ painterly memory of a dinner in Italy, the paintings, collages, drawings, sculptures, and installations included herein provide the viewer the opportunity to take pleasure in their beauty and meaning from their profundity.”

Text: Lynn M. Herbert , Schjeldahl Peter et al. cm 23×31; pp. 112; COL; paperback. Publisher: Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, 2002.
