Aesthetics and Painting.
London: Continuum International Publishing Group.
'Aesthetics and Painting' examines current debates and ideas in the aesthetics of painting. At the book's centre is an investigation of the complex relationship between what a painting depicts and the means by which it is depicted. The book looks at: classical theories of mimesis; the relationship between the painted surface and the depicted subject; problems of reference and denotation; the analysis of pictorial style; painting as an historically reflexive and self-critical practice; the emergence of fully abstract art; the most recent technological and aesthetic developments and their implications; the contemporary challenges to painting.
