    Listening to Stone ePUB ☆ Listening toMOBI :â listening download, stone book, Listening to download, Listening to Stone Epub Art has to have some kind of humanly touching and memorable uality It has to recall something which moves a person a recollection a recognition of his loneliness or tragedy or whatever is at the root of his recollectionFor sculptor Isamu Noguchi loneliness was a great part of creating art One of the strongest feelings that Noguchi had was of being without a national identity Born in the United States to an American mother and Japanese father and having lived in Japan as a small child he considered himself a nomad never finding a place to call homeRejection by his father a well known Japanese poet was also a source of his loneliness Although surrounded by friends mentors and lovers Noguchi was never really able to commit to a single relationship or find a family Surprisingly then perhaps was the fact that so many people recognized his great talent championed his work and cared for him beyond what could possibly be expected

    Listening to Stone ePUB ☆ Listening toMOBI :â listening download, stone book, Listening to download, Listening to Stone EpubInformation overload this book was than I ever wanted to know about Nuguchi I kept slogging away at this detailed account of his life and difficult personality because I love my book club Noguchi himself was uite poetic and clear when he talked about his sculpture Unfortunately much of this text was dry and repetitive That said I really like his art didn’t know much of it before the book I loved the many photos The text would have been meaningless to me without them He lived to age 84 and had a lot to show for so many years of genius

    Listening to Stone ePUB ☆ Listening toMOBI :â listening download, stone book, Listening to download, Listening to Stone EpubThis is a somewhat long biography but feels comprehensive in it coverage and placement of Ismau Noguchi as a 20th century artist historical figure and uniuely American phenomenon I enjoyed learning of his intersections with important people and events I have a better appreciation of his work and want to see and learn

    Listening to Stone ePUB ☆ Listening toMOBI :â listening download, stone book, Listening to download, Listening to Stone EpubFairly well written but it's obvious that the author adores the work of Noguchi and therefore fawns over his creations often with bizarrely over reaching interpretations of his work as well as excusing the few shitty things the guy did in his personal life

    Listening to Stone ePUB ☆ Listening toMOBI :â listening download, stone book, Listening to download, Listening to Stone EpubHayden Herrera's biography Frida is one of my favorite books I was excited to see she had written a biography of one of Frida's lovers the great Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi While Listening to Stone is a very inclusive tome regarding the prolific art works of Noguchi I didn't connect with this artist's life as well as I did with Frida's It might be because Noguchi was a very private man who was prone to seclusion and depression; whereas Frida lived her life out loud However Ms Herrera is such an accomplished writer I expected to be pulled in to the dynamics of Noguchi's life which included his many incarnations in Japan and in The United States In fact at the end of this book I didn't feel like I really knew this man at all With Frida I didn't want the book to end; and I have read that book three times If you are a 20th century art enthusiast you will certainly enjoy h
