The Intriguing Vision of Sylvia Hyman

The Intriguing Vision of Sylvia Hyman

SYLVIA HYMAN’s trompe l’oeil (meaning to deceive the eye) ceramic sculpture is among the most convincing in the world. This latest publication from Mansfield Press brings together essays written about Hyman’s art along with numerous examples of her ceramics. Over a prolific lifetime of making ceramics, Sylvia Hyman has exhibited widely and her work is to be found in prestigious public and private collections, throughout the USA and internationally. Examples of Hyman’s work will both delight and intrigue readers who perhaps will not believe it is completely made of clay, a fine example of trompe l’oeil that truly deceives the eye. This exquisite, full colour publication gives an insight into not only the techniques behind Hyman’s masterful works but also her concepts, intellectual and aesthetic approaches to her art. The 112 page book also includes a bonus DVD featuring a 23 minute documentary on Hyman, “Eternal Wonder” and 431 images of Hyman’s work. This book is a valuable resource for all artists, academics and students.
