The work of American artist Ruth Asawa (1926–2013) is brought into brilliant focus in this definitive book. Beginning with her earliest works, this beautiful volume traces Asawa’s flourishing career from Black Mountain College to her time in San Francisco. Through her lifelong experimentations with sculpture, Asawa transfigured the commonplace into the transcendent. This updated 332-page paperback edition features full-color photography, as well as essays reflecting on the impact of American political history on Asawa's artistic vision, her experience with printmaking, and her friendship with photographer Imogen Cunningham.
