By Claude Cernuschi

As a massive member of the hot York university, Barnett Newman is well known for his radical explorations of colour and scale and, as a precursor to the Minimalist flow, for his major contribution to the improvement of twentieth-century American artwork. but when his popularity and position in heritage have grown more and more safe, the paintings he produced continues to be hugely proof against interpretation. His work are conscientiously summary, and his writings jam-packed with references to arcane metaphysical innovations. annoyed over their lack of ability to reconcile the works with what the artist stated approximately them, a few critics have brushed off the work as impenetrable. The paintings historian Yve-Alain Bois known as Newman “the so much tricky artist” he might identify, and the thinker Jean-François Lyotard declared that “there is nearly not anything to ‘consume’ [in his work], or if there's, i don't be aware of what it is.” In order to boost interpretation, this ebook investigates either Newman’s writings and work in mild of rules articulated by way of one in every of Germany’s most vital and influential philosophers: Martin Heidegger. some of the subject matters explored in Newman’s statements, and echoed within the titles of his work, betray a number of issues of intersection with Heidegger’s philosophy: the query of origins, the individuality of human presence, a person’s feel of position, the feeling of terror, the definition of freedom, the significance of temper to life, the particularities of paintings and language, the effect of expertise on sleek lifestyles, the that means of time, and the human being’s courting to others and to the divine. whilst tested within the context of Heideggerian idea, those concerns collect larger concreteness, and, in flip, their relation to the artist’s work turns into clearer. it's the competition of this e-book that, on the intersection of paintings heritage and philosophy, an interdisciplinary framework emerges in which the artist’s broader motivations and the explicit meanings of his work end up extra amenable to elucidation.
