A visually arresting collection of new works by emerging artists and celebrated names, united around a simple premise. The first in an exciting new series, Feelings: Soft Art is an intimate exploration of contemporary art today. Focused on material qualities and the feelings evoked by a work, this thematic approach returns to the basic pleasure of experiencing art. An easy, evocative look at artists and their projects, this heavily illustrated publication features hands-on insight from within the art world and without. Drawing on hundreds of new paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other practices, extended essays develop common threads. Brief texts and interviews reveal the making of soft works and artists’ relationships with the materials they use.
