Encounters with Artists | Author: Richard Cook
Richard Cork draws on his impeccable skills as a critic and writer to tell the story of his encounters with some of the world's most influential artists. Through a series of frank interviews, some scheduled, others serendipitous, he uncovers artists' inner thoughts, anxieties and creative ambitions, to reveal the personalities behind the art.
From individuals who are able to look back over a lifetime's work, such as Louise Bourgeois, Roy Lichtenstein and Jasper Johns, to young artists encountered at the beginning of their careers, including Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst. From a drive through the Yorkshire countryside with David Hockney to a tour of Soho drinking establishments with Francis Bacon, alongside remarkably insightful encounters with artists as varied as Gerhard Richter, Doris Salcedo, Sonia Boyce, Luc Tuymans and Steve McQueen, Richard Cork has found that 'talking to artists can in my experience be surprising, revealing, salutary, testing, provocative, stimulating and at times capable of overturning all my preconceptions about the individuals I encounter.'
