MYND / Íris Erlings
In this volume, London-based artist Íris Erlings portrays works by modernist sculptors including Jean Arp, Barbara Hepworth, and Henry Moore. Erlings's detailed drawings capture the materiality, texture, and physicality of the stone and marble sculptures, with the Risograph printing of her images adding a layer of texture. All of the works in MYND are representations of the female body, sometimes headless and occasionally abstracted. Erlings works from reference images found in 1960s catalogs, where the image quality and high contrasts of sixties-era printing created dynamic, bold copies. Evocative and sensual, the drawings in this blue-toned publication celebrate form, shape, and the intricacies of the female form as interpreted by artists from different generations.
