Description

In his third book, Strauss delves into the mysterious process whereby an idea is born in the mind and materialized through the hand in the expression of an artwork. How exactly does this happen? It’s a question so basic, an act so fundamental to art-making, that it has rarely received
attention. It makes an ideal topic for Strauss, a writer with an exceptional ability to animate art’s philosophical dimensions in a clear, persuasive manner. During this time when craft and the direct manipulation of materials by the artist appear to be in eclipse, Strauss comes to their defense in
a spirited cri de coeur.
