By Claude Cernuschi

As a big member of the recent York university, Barnett Newman is widely known for his radical explorations of colour and scale and, as a precursor to the Minimalist circulate, for his major contribution to the improvement of twentieth-century American artwork. but when his attractiveness and position in heritage have grown increasingly more safe, the paintings he produced is still hugely immune to interpretation. His work are conscientiously summary, and his writings filled with references to arcane metaphysical innovations. pissed off over their lack of ability to reconcile the works with what the artist stated approximately them, a few critics have brushed off the work as impenetrable. The paintings historian Yve-Alain Bois known as Newman “the such a lot tough artist” he may possibly identify, and the thinker Jean-François Lyotard declared that “there is nearly not anything to ‘consume’ [in his work], or if there's, i don't recognize what it is.” In order to improve interpretation, this e-book investigates either Newman’s writings and work in mild of principles articulated via one in all Germany’s most vital and influential philosophers: Martin Heidegger. the various issues explored in Newman’s statements, and echoed within the titles of his work, betray quite a few issues of intersection with Heidegger’s philosophy: the query of origins, the uniqueness of human presence, a person’s feel of position, the feeling of terror, the definition of freedom, the significance of temper to lifestyles, the particularities of paintings and language, the effect of know-how on sleek lifestyles, the that means of time, and the human being’s dating to others and to the divine. while tested within the context of Heideggerian inspiration, those matters collect higher concreteness, and, in flip, their relation to the artist’s work turns into clearer. it's the competition of this booklet that, on the intersection of artwork heritage and philosophy, an interdisciplinary framework emerges in which the artist’s broader motivations and the explicit meanings of his work turn out extra amenable to elucidation.
