New York City-based artist Mel Bochner (born 1940) is one of the founders of Conceptual and Installation art. Monoprints is, surprisingly, the first book devoted solely to this important artist’s experimental printed works, even though Bochner has been producing text-based works for over 40 years. In the last 18 years, Bochner has produced a remarkable body of printed works in collaboration with Two Palms studio in New York, and Monoprints focuses on the often large-scale and incredibly physical text-based works made using the studio’s industrial hydraulic press. The book is illustrated with 34 full-color reproductions and includes an essay by critic Barry Schwabsky, as well as an interview by Schwabsky with Bochner, in which the artist explains the genesis and evolution of this central part of his art-making activities.

About the Artist

Mel Bochner

MEL BOCHNER is best known for his exploration of connections between language, perception and meaning. “Certain things, like how language is related to time, can be uniquely encoded in the act of painting itself.’ (Burton, Johanna. “Mel Bochner Language: 1966-2006.” Pg 140.)

His use of words, shapes and colors combined with a fascination with language and its many interpretations has dominated his expansive artistic career, which spans nearly five decades. Bochner’s earliest work being amongst the first art to examine language in the visual arts is credited as being part of the beginning of Conceptual art.

Featured in dozens of exhibitions and part of many more group exhibitions, Bochner’s work can be found in collections from around the world including MOCA Los Angeles, the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, France, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, NY and the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, OH.
