About this title

Synopsis:

This exhilarating overview of the acclaimed artist Vik Muniz traces the development of his work from the very beginning of his career to his most recent astonishing large-scale works. Vik Muniz is celebrated for his joyful, quirky, dark, and occasionally mind-boggling work that riffs on popular photographic imagery, referencing social icons and cultural realities and juxtaposing these themes in fascinating ways. This book features an extraordinary selection of works that span Muniz’s entire career―more than 150 color illustrations display the enormous range of Muniz’s work and the disorienting and expansive logic of his world. International icon Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is portrayed with diamonds with as much reverence as Brazilian landfill workers whose portraits are created from the trash they collect. The Mona Lisa is recreated in peanut butter and jelly. Artist Jackson Pollock is depicted in his studio in a work made entirely out of chocolate syrup. Throughout, Muniz’s irreverent and thought-provoking approach to his subjects reveals the shaky underpinnings of universally accepted “truths.”

From the Back Cover:

Widely celebrated as one of the most innovative and creative artists of our time, Vik Muniz works magic with unconventional materials―trash, diamonds, chocolate, spaghetti, toys, soil―to compose revampings of famous paintings and photographs, or to “draw” portraits, which he then “retakes” with his own camera. The resulting works, what Muniz calls “photographic delusions,” are wondrous assemblages that defy easy classification and playfully engage the viewer’s process of perception. Surveying the artist’s entire career to date through his major series, this book presents more than 150 wildly inventive, richly detailed works. A penetrating essay by art historian Arthur Ollman illuminates the play and painstaking work behind the artist’s creative process, while giving historical context to his roving engagement with photography and the iconic imagery of popular culture.
