GRAHAM CROWLEY by Martin Holman
Large format, hardback, 124 pages with 23 illustrations and 61 colour plates.
Graham Crowley (b.1950) became a painter in the early 1970s out of conviction for the validity of painting, at a time when artists of the '1968 generation' were seeking to break the link with painting and its traditions.
This book is the first to review the achievement of a highly regarded contemporary artist.
Martin Holman's engaging text surveys the artist's entire career to date and is accompanied by colour reproductions of key works.
Hardback: £25 inc. P&P in UK.
I DON'T LIKE ART
Studies in value and meaning
“I Don’t Like Art” is a collection of essays and interviews by Graham. Several of the texts are ‘artless’, in so much as they do not contain the word art. Graham considers the idea that to simply ‘like’ something in a critical context is banal.
