This monograph surveys the work of Scottish painter Christopher Orr (born 1967), comprised mostly of paintings and collages. Orr's imagery derives from an extensive archive of vintage magazines, science textbooks, 16mm and Super 8 film stills, and his intimately scaled canvases oscillate between reality and the uncanny.

Text by Caoimh'n Mac Giolla Léith.
Most of London painter Christopher Orr's canvases are smaller than 10 inches square. Combining the style of nineteenth-century Northern Romantic painting with isolated images culled from vintage illustrated sources such as children's books, popular scientific journals and religious magazines, the paintings are moody and evocative, their figures "sleepwalking cyphers who have strayed here from an indeterminate elsewhere where they once had a purpose," according to essayist Caoimh'n Mac Giolla Léith. This volume is a delight, with deluxe paper cut to different sizes, an enclosed poster and a special half-soft-cover, half-hardcover cloth binding.
Christopher Orr was born in Helensburgh, Scotland, in 1967. He has had recent solo shows at Nyehaus, New York, Hauser & Wirth, Zurich, Ibid Projects, London, and Sister, Los Angeles. His works are in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
