Description:
Well known for his radical 'anarchitectural' interventions throughout the 1970s, Gordon Matta-Clark was always deeply, though less publicly, committed to drawing. His works on paper - which span three- dimensional reliefs, calligraphy, and notebook entries - capture the interdisciplinary spirit that defined the art world in the 1970s. Intricate and concise, they testify to his interest in the crossovers between visual and performance arts, as well as the broader integration within his oeuvre of the natural and built environment. The Beginning of Trees and the End, published on the occasion of Matta-Clark's eponymous 2015 show at David Zwirner, documents the artist's extraordinary accomplishments as a draftsman. Organized by theme, the catalogue presents in vibrant detail selections from Matta-Clark's Cut Drawings, Energy Rooms, Energy Trees, and his own 'calligraphy,' many of which have never been published.
Perhaps the best known of the group, the Cut Drawings explore parallel, smaller-format versions of his physical interventions in architecture; slicing meticulously through several layers of paper, gesso, or cardboard, Matta-Clark created sculptural flat works that emphasized the voids created by the extraction of matter. Some of the most elaborate and colorful compositions include trees. In full-color plates, the reader can see the physical structure of his trees 'dissolving' into kinetic energy and, in some drawings, becoming reduced to a multitude of arrows.
