This first major monograph on feminist sculptor Karen LaMonte features her hauntingly beautiful works that draw upon the power of the sublime.

LaMonte’s highly charged works embody a challenge to historic conceptions of the female nude. Integrated into a comprehensive monograph are 250 images of her acclaimed series—from glass, ceramic, bronze, and rusted iron-draped female figures to timely explorations in climatology and biomimetics.

In this definitive look at a vital contemporary artist, essays by award-winning authors frame LaMonte’s work in the context of female identity, music, art history, and science, placing her alongside other contemporary sculptors who have adopted the human body as an vehicle for expressing the human condition.
