Looking back at the works of Louise Nevelson, Franz West, Ben Nicholson, Cy Twombly, Giorgio Morandi, Piero Manzoni, Alberto Burri and others, these unique works by Jonathan Monk fulfill their reassuring mission: the reengaging of works by Richard Prince, Sol LeWitt, Ed Ruscha and Martin Kippenberger left rich in our imagination.

Jonathan Monk has a large library and it is full of artist’s books from the 20th century.

At the time of their publication, these books allowed their owner to be in the presence of a true work of art for small amounts of US Dollars, French Francs, German Marks, Italian Liras or English Pounds.

For onestar, the artist has excavated a few of those brilliant volumes and scattered them on the floor of his Berlin studio. He then cut cardboard to precisely simulate the thickness and dimensions of the books and used these replicas to create eighteen different compositions, assembled with white glue and covered in gesso and white paint.

And thus the books stacks by Jonathan Monk were born.
