2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 13 Feb 2009
Format: Hardcover
Length: 0:19 Mins
Counterweight is a collection of images, observations, and concepts by artist/creator Rick O'Brien.

I would consider the art featured in this book abstract. It might be a little hard to make form and physicality out of some pieces. In simple terms, it translate to,"Hey, nice art, but what is he painting?" For those that I can make out, they are about human characters and the environment.

He uses a lot of traditional medium such as egg tempera, oil, gouche, wood, ink, resin and plaster (for his scuptures).

It's very hard to review abstract. Everyone has their own interpretation. It's better for you to see it and decide for yourself.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

I should have rated it 3-4 stars but clicked wrongly. Amazon doesn't allow edits.

Good collection 26 Nov 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I think this book is a good collection to have, love most of the work. But if you are not intrigued by his way of representing ideas, don't force yourself to buy it
