Blunt Object

This book features both well-known and emerging artists from Europe and the United States, and explores a recent shift in object making from the large-scale and heroic to the vernacular, spunky, and blatant. 

Blunt Object features artist bios and color reproductions of sculpture by Aaron Baker, John Beech, Mark Cole, Meredith Danluck, Bill Davenport, Sally Elesby, Tom Friedman, Matt Harle, Elizabeth McGrath, Charles Long, Franz West, Sarah Whipple, Alan Wiener, and Daniel Wiener.
