About this Item

240pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Jill Von Hartmann. "Through Prehensile Eyes" is a collection of Robert Williams' fifty-eight then-recent paintings first exhibited at New York's Tony Shafrazi Gallery and subsequently shown in May 2005 at the Ben Maltz Gallery at Los Angeles' Otis College of Art. The images range from the artist's familiar lowbrow and biker culture, stretching deep into a faux science of quantum mechanics leaving the viewer in a world of scientific mindplay. Robert Williams sprang from the custom car culture of Southern California and was one of the original Zap Comix artists. He transcended the constraints of both, mastering oils and forging a career as the preeminent artist among a generation of imagist painters. After singlehandedly becoming the model of Lowbrow Art, Williams has now penetrated the inner sanctum of the fine arts movement. A brand new, pristine example of the 2005 first deluxe numbered hardbound edition of four hundred copies with the publisher's numbered bookplate featuring a caricature of the artist SIGNED by Robert Williams in black ink affixed to the front inside cover still in the publisher's shrinkwrap, as issued. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.
