This book focuses on a selection of works from the series Radical Writings produced in the 1980s and 1990s. In these works the artist links her breathing to the gesture of writing, repeating a single action: drawing a line corresponding to one single breath. The striking blue paintings on canvas open up a discussion on language and signs, and on the authority of the written word that is constantly challenged as a vehicle of power.

This book is published in conjunction with the exhibition Irma Blank: Breath Paintings, MOSTYN, Wales UK (15 November–1 March, 2015)
