James Turrell (*1943, Los Angeles), einer der wichtigsten Künstler unserer Zeit, widmet sich seit mehr als 50 Jahren der Auseinandersetzung mit der (Im-)Materialität und Wahrnehmung von Licht. Wie keinem anderen gelingt es Turrell, Licht als künstlerisches Medium sinnlich und geistig erlebbar zu machen. Er selbst bezeichnet seine Kunst auch als 'Perceptual Art', als eine Kunst der Wahrnehmung. In großformatigen, atmosphärischen Installationen flutet der Künstler begehbare Räume mit Licht, welches sich in sanfte Farbenmeere oder in intensiv glühende Lichtnebel ergießt und den Betrachter an die Grenzen seiner Wahrnehmung bringt. Das Buch gibt einen umfassenden Einblick in das Schaffen von James Turrell und vereint Werke aus verschiedenen Schaffensphasen seit den 1960er-Jahren.

Bold, immersive images of the artist's visionary installations. Tracking his career from the 1960s onwards, the book reveals how Turrell's engagement with light, space and colour have altered the way we perceive the world.--Aesthetica Turrell's meticulously engineered environments transform light into a palpable object. Light is felt as wind or heat might befelt; and space, when experienced as indefinite, paradoxically presses close and evelops the body. Extraordinary Ideas can't provide that extraordinary sensation, but it does remind us that light, as Turrell puts it, 'is a powerful substance.'--Albert Mobilio "Bookforum " The real beauty of this book, with its stunning photographs and rainbow-color-tinted pages, is that you get to take a piece of Mr. Turrell's magic home with you.--Wall Street Journal "a beautiful compilation of key works" Featured in New York Magazine's The 20 Best Coffee-Table Books to Give, According to Art People--Sandro Kereselidze "New York Magazine "
