Over the last thirty years, Martin Puryear has created a body of work that defies categorization, creating sculpture that examines identity, culture and history. Departing from the impersonal and mechanical aesthetic of Minimalism, Puryears work combines. This book accompanies an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art that follows Puryears development from his first solo show, in 1977, to new works that will be presented for the first time at the exhibition. With essays by John Elderfield, Michael Auping and Elizabeth Reede, and a conversation with the artist by Richard Powell, it will be essential reading for anyone interested in the artist.

Martin L. Puryear (born May 23, 1941) is an American artist known for his devotion to traditional craft. 54–57 The artist's Martin Puryear: Liberty/Libertà exhibition represented the United States at the 2019 Venice Biennale.

A perforated wood screen stretches across the forecourt, like a church rood screen. This moment has caught me being as much a citizen as an artist, said the sculptor Martin Puryear on an afternoon in his studio in New York’s Hudson River Valley early in April.

Martin Puryear includes sculptures dating from 1976 to the present .

Martin Puryear includes sculptures dating from 1976 to the present, including one monumental work created especially for the exhibition tour. Puryear's art is grounded in sculpture, architecture, and craft traditions from around the world. John Elderfield, the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis chief curator of painting and sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, selected the exhibition along with the artist. Ruth Fine, curator of special projects in modern art at the National Gallery of Art, is coordinating the exhibition in Washington.

Martin Puryear, like Louise Bourgeois, defies categories and this makes him a challenge for anyone organizing an exhibition or a book for that matter. His workmanship is outstanding and this tends to lead viewer astray into thinking that fine finish is really what he is after. His thought provoking sculptures appear so simple, yet they are both artistically and techinically complex.

Over the last 30 years, Martin Puryear has created a body of work that defies categorization, creating sculpture that examines identity, culture and history. Departing from the impersonal and machined aesthetic of Minimalism, Puryear's work combines Modernist abstraction with the traditions of crafts and woodworking, in shapes informed by the natural and by ordinary objects, made with materials such as tar, wood, stone and wire. It is quiet but deliberately associative, encompassing wide-reaching cultural and intellectual experiences and drawing on a huge and varied reserve of images, ideas and information. As a high school and college student, the artist studied ornithology, falconry and archery, and in the 1960s he volunteered with the Peace Corps in Sierra Leone, where he schooled himself in the region's indigenous crafts; these are only a few of the influences and methods that have embedded themselves in his work. And the sources of his works are no less varied than the possible and open-ended interpretations: "I think there are a number of levels at which my work can be dealt with and appreciated," Puryear said in a 1978 interview. "It gives me pleasure to feel there's a level that doesn't require knowledge of, or immersion in, the aesthetic of a given time or place."This volume is published on the occasion of the artist's Fall 2007 exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, which travels from New York to Fort Worth, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco. It follows Puryear's development from his first solo show in 1977 to new works that are presented here for the first time and contains essays by John Elderfield, Michael Auping and Elizabeth Reede, and a conversation with the artist by Richard Powell.
  • Martin Puryear, like Louise Bourgeois , defies categories and this makes him a challenge for anyone organizing an exhibition or a book for that matter. His workmanship is outstanding and this tends to lead viewer astray into thinking that fine finish is really what he is after. His thought provoking sculptures appear so simple, yet they are both artistically and techinically complex. This book is an outstanding example of what can be done when those producing the book understand the work of the artist they are trying to disaplay.

  • Excellent book on Puryear.

  • great book. Wonderful artist, Lots of nice large reproductions with just the right amount of useful text.

  • An excellent work with great photos and text. A beautiful book that could be enjoyed by anyone interested in expertly crafted contemporary art.

  • great in depth look at a great artist!!

  • ... but much cheaper. It was worth waiting a few days to get this catalogue, rather than having immediate satisfaction by immediate purchase at the museum. [Great artist, by the way!]

  • It took WAY too long to get to us! otherwise a beautiful book that will be enjoyed by our retiring wood shop teacher.

  • Being at the opening of this show at moma was an amazingly wonderful and magical evening. Went to the very exciting opening of this show in NYC and it was truly uplifting to my soul, a very inspired exhibit!!

    Emotional content mixed with organic elements of expression. Amazing accomplishment. He is a 30 year ago Art school friend of my friend.

    For me it was like a immensely large tree [the art show] growing in the middle of a cement Jungle [NYC]. Signs of life, expression, that are giving me hope .

    I Highly recommend this show, and while I agree that moma may not be the best place to show his work, the contrast to that place was so striking that his work seemed very alive and sprouting right through the dullness.

    I like this quote from a review:
    Unlike other sculptors his age who emerged in the post-minimalist era, he values what he can make with his hands. His efforts are not just conceptual but physical. As critic Michael Brenson once observed, ''Puryear has the ability to make sculpture that is known by the body before it is articulated by the mind."
