4.0 out of 5 stars Three Artists Make a Nice Book, 28 Jun. 2009
Parka (Singapore) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Three Trees Make a Forest (Hardcover)
Length:: 0:16 Mins

This book doesn't have anything to do with trees, although there are painted trees in some of the illustration. It's a very simple art book, an artistic expression of three artists, Ronnie Del Carmen, Tadahiro Uesugi and Enrico Casarosa. It collects the work they have created for an exhibition.

The small hardcover opens up to illustrations from Tadahiro Uesugi. He presents images of urban settings rendered in nice texture, form and lighting. They are basically snapshots of life. Enrico Casarosa, in his section, contributes watercolour portraits of women, with a few dynamic top down camera views. Finally Ronnie Del Carman with his dream girl Nina.

Lacking any stories (and depth), the art just represents themselves, certainly in a style not for everyone. I like Tadahiro Uesugi's work more as there are more detailed and he captures the mood well. Enrico Casarosa's sketches in the book don't really do it for me, his other book The Venice Chronicles is however absolutely wonderful.

Three Trees Make a Forest a beautiful coffee table book, but I would recommended it more to fans of these artists.

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