Richard Prince: 3rd PlaceRichard Prince: 3rd Place

A Children's Colouring Book

Published by Walther König, Köln.

Within this children's coloring book for grown-ups, readers will find 72 messy, funny, sometimes risqué black-and-white line drawings of people, monsters, robots and flowers. Is there a nude, bearded guy with peace symbols for eyes? Sure. A mummy? Yes again. How about a stick figure with ears that grow up over the top of his head or a female nude with a crude black pirate patch over one demonic eye? Check, and check again. For lovers of Richard Prince, one of the foremost American artists of the Pictures generation, or for anyone with an off-beat sense of humor, this is a must-have artist's book, produced on the occasion of Prince's 2008 Serpentine Gallery exhibition. As Roberta Smith wrote in her 2007 review of Prince's major mid-career survey at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, "Practically every last American could find something familiar, if usually a bit unsettling, in his work." Adults--and children too.

Yoshitomo Nara: LullabyYoshitomo Nara: Lullaby

Published by Verlag Fur Moderne Kunst Nurnberg.
Essays by Stephan Trescher and Banana Yoshimoto.

At first sight, the childlike figures for which Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara is now famous seem altogether cute and appealing. On closer examination his creations are robust, angry and vulnerable creatures, standing up defiantly to the world of adults--self-confident, stubborn and sometimes violent. Nara's work is influenced by Japanese comic books but he is unique in the contemporary art scene for tapping into horror through the medium of the innocent child--this is particularly poignant in Japan's controlled society of rigid language and social structures, especially considering recent shockingly violent crimes in Japan involving children as the aggressors. Nara's work instills the viewer with a juxtaposition of the innocence of children and the evil nature of humanity, or the fall from grace. Like Kurt Cobain's music, Nara's Pop art, too, aims to lend expression to his generation's concerns, encouraging it to meet the constraints of high achievement. Self-determination, individuality, and freedom are themes that infuse Nara's voice that is clearly heard in Japan and America, where the dividing line between “low” and “high” culture is less stringently drawn than in Europe. In addition to Nara's signature paintings, sculptures, and drawings; (poems and diary entries by the artist); this 204-page book includes texts by the art critic Stephan Trescher and the Japanese cult author Banana Yoshimoto.

Ca-Ca Poo-PooCa-Ca Poo-Poo

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Udo Kittelmann.

We all remember our experiences with finger painting as children- the delight in sanctioned messiness, the swirls of color on our paper, maybe having the result taped to the classroom wall or stuck on the refrigerator at home. With many artists, the childish preoccupation with smearing continues as a sensual play with pigment and its tactile quality. The provocatively titled Ca-ca poo-poo endeavors to trace this phenomenon with works by a variety of artists including Tracey Emin, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Tony Tasset, and others.

Paul McCarthy: Tokyo SantaPaul McCarthy: Tokyo Santa

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Artwork by Paul McCarthy.

Trust us, you don't want this Santa coming down your chimney. Through a series of 75 crisp images, mostly in brilliant reds, Tokyo Santa documents Paul McCarthy's 1996 performance at Tomio Kayama Gallery. Santa is decidedly naughty--he shows his private parts, and smears ketchup and paint everywhere. Everywhere. Also included are ten drawings that Santa made during his performance; they share a palette of browns, reds, black and greens. With its large format, and cheerful red-and-green palette, this oversized book makes a wonderful holiday gift--but not for the kids.

John Lurie: Learn to DrawJohn Lurie: Learn to Draw

Published by Walther König, Köln.

A book of funny, strange, enraged, grotesque, brilliant and affectionate drawings by jazz musician and actor John Lurie.
Although Lurie has been making his naughty and often Surrealistic drawings for 20 years, it was not until 2004 that he began to exhibit them--and then to instant acclaim. In 2005, the New York Times critic Roberta Smith wrote, "music's loss may turn out to be art's gain."
In Learn to Draw, 65 black-and-white line drawings are printed across from enigmatically hilarious descriptive titles, such as "wolf serenading asses," "three car salesmen think about the same cat," or "Rose had a barn hat."

Walter Martin & Paloma Muñoz: TravelersWalter Martin & Paloma Muñoz: Travelers

Published by Aperture.
Fiction by Jonathan Lethem.

Within the simple constraints of a glass globe, the captivating images in Travelers conjure up entire sequences of imaginary worlds and events. Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz collaboratively create mesmerizing miniature snowbound environments, then record them in chilly color photographs. At first glance the work is playful; on closer observation, it often reveals darker narratives: Lone wanderers survey the frigid landscape, people and creatures exhibit unnatural tendencies and ill-defined crimes are committed. Martin & Muñoz create the figures--either adapting ready-mades or shaping them out of clay--then paint and position them within the environments they also construct. The final compositions are then captured in photographs that are meticulously stitched and adjusted digitally for the final effect.
This new book, featuring an original short story by acclaimed author Jonathan Lethem, contains the very best of Martin & Muñoz's most notable work, along with their newest series of panoramic narratives, for which they are already receiving accolades from the press--including a recent feature in The New York Times. Curator Dan Cameron has complimented the artists on their ability to juggle both visual and psychological charges: "At the same time that they produce riddle-like parables about modern existence, they do not shirk the artist's obligation to invent a new formulation of tactile and even sensual pleasure."
Walter Martin, born in Norfolk, Virginia in 1953 and Paloma Muñoz, born in Madrid in 1965, have been professional and personal partners since 1993. They live in Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania and maintain a studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Their work is in the collections of many prominent institutions, including the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Miami Art Museum. The artists are represented by P.P.O.W. Gallery in New York.

Peter McDonald: Teaching, Airport, Hair Salon, Bakery, SnookerPeter McDonald: Teaching, Airport, Hair Salon, Bakery, Snooker

Published by Veenman Publishers.

This first monograph introduces the bright, cartoony figurative painting of the Tokyo-born, London-based artist Peter McDonald. Designed to resemble a children's picture book, this text-free volume delivers a colorful world inhabited by people engaged in everyday activities--teaching, relaxing, making bread, holding hands, buying wool, dressing hair. McDonald's figures are constructed with an elementary graphic language. They have a cartoon-like simplicity and waver at the point where figuration might tip at any moment into abstraction. Human forms veer towards the geometric: circles stand in for heads, flat planes describe rooms and crude poses denote narrative. Yet these simplifications appear to create a community of super-humans living in a world that has a harmonious transparency. McDonald is represented in London by Kate MacGarry gallery.
