The book, When You Sleep: A Survey of Shizu Saldamando, was created in conjunction with the artist's solo exhibition at the Vincent Price Art Museum in Los Angeles. It contains artwork by Shizu Saldamando with an essay by Raquel Gutiérrez and was edited by Karen Rapp. In her meticulous, stunning drawings, paintings and collages, Shizu depicts portraits of her friends - unguarded and unposed - at clubs, parties, and in other private spaces. Her work proposes a decidedly contemporary take on portraiture, in which the conventional constructs of identity are challenged by layering signifiers and hybrid meanings that hint at the complexity of ethnicity, race, class and gender.
