". . . big, visually gripping and psychologically strange [paintings]." - The New York Times

Lari Pittman's meticulously rendered paintings employ a complex mix of symbols and images to create dense and compelling narratives on love, violence, and desire. Drawing upon design, folk art, and decorative traditions, Pittman's brightly colored paintings incorporate and rework a range of styles and genres--Victorian silhouettes, social realist murals, and Mexican retablos--to conjure a hallucinatory effect unique in contemporary painting. Pittman has earned numerous accolades in the art world and has been included in the Venice Biennale, Documenta X, and four Whitney Biennials. The first monograph on his thirty-year career, this book will be a vital addition to any art enthusiast's library.
