Albert Paley: Portals and Gates
Richly illustrated with over 150 color plates, this text offers the first comprehensive overview of the artist's public, private, and institutional passageways and also highlights key works – both built and imagined – in his long career. Spanning from his first major commission in 1974, "
," for the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. to one of his most recent, Iowa State’s "
," this book presents the finest examples of Paley's distinctive interpretation of gates, portals, and passageways. His success in transforming gates and portals from utilitarian objects to aesthetic symbols of "passage" is examined, as are his sources in nature and his investment in the collaborative process. The diversity and renowned quality of Paley's work are vividly presented through an analysis of its formal characteristics and the aesthetic, symbolic, and utilitarian functions that thematically tie them together.
