Mark Tansey (born 1949, San Jose, California) is an American painter. Tansey had an early introduction to art. These early childhood experiences had a profound effect on Tansey's painting style from the inception of his career as an artist. Many of Tansey's paintings are monochromatic and seem old-fashioned. His method involves laying down a layer of monochrome pigment on canvas that can be altered easily only before it dries

Mark Tansey's paintings show that these formalist dogmas criple painting by taking away its ability to articulate thought and feeling about our world. It dogmas construct an incumbering chamber of gates, walls, and shackels.

Mark Tansey's paintings show that these formalist dogmas criple painting by taking away its ability to articulate thought and feeling about our world. Mark Tansey's wit and humor, brings metaphor and discourse back into the art of painting. The Innocent Eye Test 1981, 78 x 120 i., . 6. In Tansey's painted metaphor for the perception of art, we are the cow, and the scientists want to know how and what we see -- hardly the stuff of Frank Stella's famous dictum "What you see is what.

Mark Tansey's paintings conjure a dream world-that of someone who's fallen asleep during a lecture on the history .

Nested within this dream world are the dreams of various 20th-century avantgardes, which are alternately parodied and saluted in what amounts to a case study in transcendent ambivalence

Mark Tansey's art in turn challenges the theories and context of this new philosophy of text based deconstruction espoused by Jacques Derrida, Paul de Man and others.

Mark Tansey's art in turn challenges the theories and context of this new philosophy of text based deconstruction espoused by Jacques Derrida, Paul de Man and others. The underlying questions were: How does representation transform into text? Where does the pictorial rhetoric begin and where does the rhetorical text end?" (M. Tansey, quoted in J. Freeman, Mark Tansey, Los Angeles, 1993, p. 30).

It covers the essence of Tansey's work in clear manner, gives necessary explanations to his paintings and stresses artist's uniqueness - his orientation to the intellectual inquires in the contemporary art's landscape, which is predominated by stylistic, not substantive innovations.

Good as far as it goes, though more recent works not included of course.

Mark Tansey's artwork is original, philosophical, covers linguistic debates, and requires the audience to know more about art history, philosophical debates than any other artist. His work is a critique on art itself and an answer to the questions he raises and other artists have raised. The paintings defy description, and interpretation requires a PHD in art history or a great appreciation for art. I recommend this book for all because even without full knowledge of the debates Tansey is covering or debunking, one can appreciate the art itself.
