This is a major new study and celebration of the career and legacy of the modernist sculptor, painter, collagist and educator Luise Clayborn Kaish (1925 - 2013). Kaish was a key figure in the New York art scene of the late 20th century, whose multidisciplinary and process-oriented practice contributed to various artistic discourses at the time. The strength and breadth of her work, her influential role in education, and the prestigious awards she received in recognition of her practice set her apart as an early female leader in the arts. She will be remembered for her immense talent, highly individual point of view, pursuit of the sublime, keen execution, and passion for life, which, despite the tides of changing tastes, will remain forever significant. This volume brings together nearly of her works. Essays covering Kaish's life and career, her artistic practices, her lifelong interest in the spiritual and metaphysical, and her work as an educator are followed by a main plate section, Illustrated Chronology and Exhibition History.
