About this title

Synopsis:

Created in conjunction with his solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Raymond Pettibon's new book draws on his decades of involvement with artist's books, zines, and other ephemeral visual media. This singular collection of new works makes his vision accessible to a wide audience.

Pettibon's obsessively crafted monochromatic drawings pull freely from music, politics, religion, sex, sports, movies, and comic books. Recently his style has become more fluid and expansive, resulting in room-size wall drawings and installations, as in his work for the 2004 Whitney Biennial. His thematic range is increasingly topical, addressing current political concerns as well as the human impulse toward faith.

About the Author:

Raymond Pettibon has worked almost exclusively in the medium of drawing since beginning his artistic career in 1977. His work has been shown in retrospectives at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Famed for his connection with the Los Angeles Punk music scene, Pettibon lives in Hermosa Beach, California.
