Lee Lozano: Drawings

This book presents selections of the artist’s early narrative and figurative drawings dating from 1960 to 1964. It is the first publication focusing on Lozano’s drawings, and all of the featured works are previously unpublished. Her drawings can be exacting, demanding, and formally refined, such as her sexually charged depictions of tools, or freer gestural drawings using graphite with splashes of crayon colour. Lozano also created text pieces that are part diary and part social chronicle. Conceived as a sort of artist’s sketchbook, the publication is completed by selections from the artist’s own diaries, which reveal her incredible wit, anger, intelligence, and struggles.
