Product Description

Review

."..the artist's provocative sketches, sculptures and paintings toy with our preconceptions of societal and historical norms by mixing incongruous styles, objects and figures while bringing those uncomfortable paradoxes to the forefront of our consciousness. Suited for those both familiar with Ryden's work and those who are just getting acquainted, this book directs us to the crux of what makes Ryden's work so delectable, its ability to bring together disparate things and create something that showcases both the beauty and the darkness of those encounters."

Format: Hardcover
I found this book disappointing. If you want to know about Mark Ryden and how he constructs images, it is average. There are very few paintings / prints in the book. The book shows a few paintings and then spends several pages showing "details" from the prints. Nearly the whole second half of the book shows sketches / drawings at various stags of completion that are not particularly inspiring. If you want a little detail about Ryden's mind and how he constructs some of his images, then this book has a little of that. If you are looking for a decent collection of Ryden's paintings, then this book falls well short. I wouldn't recommend this book.

The book is simply superb...full to the brim with fantastic paintings, well laid out and with detail shots which as the next best thing to seeing the paintings in the flesh and "flesh" does feature quite heavily too...a must have book which will exceed your expectations...highly recommended.

Okay but not the most exciting book I have read on an artist. To be honest for the price of it I would have hoped with a few more images of his work.
