Surviving Reality: Lee Bontecou’s Worldscapes

2010

Abstract

This article focuses on American artist Lee Bonteco’s drawing practice during the early 1960s, focusing in particular on Drawing 1961. Made with graphite, charcoal and soot, Bontecou’s works on paper are ambivalent statements about the world. They invoke distinct (and distinctive) worlds of their own, worlds that are out of step with the contemporary environment but also inescapably part of it.
