Tragic Kingdom: The Magical Art of Camille Rose Garcia (Hardcover)

Hoe ik het moet linken met comics, weet ik niet zo goed. Het valt waarschijnlijk mee onder dezelfde noemer als comics nml "Modern Art".

TRAGIC KINGDOM: THE MAGICAL ART OF CAMILLE ROSE GARCIA (HARDCOVER)

Camille Rose Garcia brengt Low brow art van de bovenste plank. Haar creepy sprookjesboeken zijn telkens weer een schot in de roos. Alvast een dikke aanrader.

Last Gasp omschrijft haar boek als volgt: This large, lavishly produced hardcover serves as the catalog for Camille Rose Garcia's first solo museum show outside of Los Angeles. Tragic Kingdom surveys her work with an emphasis on her most recent creations, showcasing paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, prints, and more. Garcia is a notable member of a Los Angeles underground contemporary art movement known as the "Pop Surrealists" or "Lowbrow" artists, who combine dark surrealism with an eclectic array of pop culture sources, including comics, animation, and 1950s television. In this collection she draws upon diverse artistic and cultural sources, such as the work of her former teacher Paul McCarthy, illustrations by nineteenth-century artist Aubrey Beardsley, myths and fairy tales, and Japanese art, specifically traditional woodblock prints and the anime inspired work of Yoshitomo Nara and Takashi Murakami. From these references, she has crafted both a style that is unique and content that is a good deal more political than the work of her contemporaries.

Enjoy !!
