Names of Numbers I

Names of Numbers is a series of monographic books of drawings by artists, intellectuals, scientists and people devoted to various other activities, curated by Carola Bonfili and Valerio Mannucci. The series’ aim is to consider drawing as a common language, often complementary or parallel to other forms of artistic or intellectual production. Each book presents 30 tables by a single author. The flexible nature of drawing, and its ability to manifest the representational capacity of the imagination, lead its uses to assume a variety of different forms: the drawings collected in this series alternately appear like diaries, studies, drafts, syntheses, memories, or even, simply, expressions of leisurely interest.

This first volume is dedicated to the work of Taylor McKimens (1976). Born in Seattle and raised in Winterhaven, California, McKimens currently lives in Brooklyn. He works mainly with painting and installation: starting from drawings he often approaches the concept of sculpture. This book collects 30 ink drawings that depict a series of characters and scenes typical of the artist’s imaginary.
