Josef Albers: No Tricks, No Twinkling of the Eyes. Edited by Tone Hansen and Milena Hoegsberg presents a reading of Albers' artistic and pedagogic legacy through the lens of contemporary artists, writers and art historians. Selections from Albers' own writings, including classic texts such as "On My Painting," "Color" and "On My Homage to the Square," mingle with essays by well-known Albers scholars Nicholas Fox Weber ("Minimal Means, Maximum Effect") and Jeannette Redensek ("On Josef Albers' Painting Materials and Techniques"); meditations by Norwegian artist Dag Erik Elgin ("Preparing for Painting to Happen"), Eva Diaz ("Jailbreaking Geometric Abstraction") and Doug Ashford ("Dear Josef"); and a collage sequence by Andrea Geyer that pays homage to Albers' prints. A wealth of color reproductions of Albers' paintings, prints and furniture are dispersed throughout the book. The design of this handsome, clothbound volume, by Jeanne Betak, draws on Albers' own typography and design sensibility.

Dag Erik Elgin: Amor Vacui
Published by Opdahl Gallery
The catalogue accompanies Dag Erik Elgin´s exhibition Amor Vacui, presented at Gallery Opdahl in Stavanger in 2006. As a thematic point of origin for the paintings of Amor Vacui, - and also centred in most of Elgin’s art moreover, is the concept of sinthome. This concept originates from Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalysis, and describes an individual’s indefinable experience of borderlines. In other words, an experience or condition that cannot be explained because it withholds any description. In the apparently simple and monochrome paintings Elgin searches for the inexplicable. Elgin links the concept to his paintings ability to create a state of compact space which: “implies that you can get closer to something, but at the same time not get too close, because then it will vanish (…) it is about a state of mind that appears before you get to the close reading, it is about giving space to the spectator.”
