Abstract
"Lure" is an artist’s book by Allyson Clay with four texts accompanied by four black and white plans for paintings. The texts give detailed and technical instructions on how to construct conventional hard-edged abstract paintings. The instructions, however, are interspersed with words and passages of a narrative and subjective quality. The seriousness of making the abstract paintings is undercut by the textual intervention; however, the intervening text is also serious since it is assertive, emotional, and elevates the subjectivity of the artist in contrast to an ossified tradition of painting.
