Part of the generation of British artists that includes Gilbert & George and Richard Long, and often grouped together with American artists like Sol LeWitt, David Tremlett began making colorful, geometric wall drawings at the end of the 1960s, with an emphasis on works in pastel since the 1980s. Tremlett's penchants for open spaces and non-conventional places have led him to install many works that would eventually degrade, in all corners of the world. Today, many of his installations are produced with the knowledge that they will be painted over, and that knowledge is part of the work itself. This volume collects drawings, site-specific projects and a series of photographs documenting Tremlett's recent show at Galleria G7 in Bologna.
