Overview

The first major collection of artwork by the acclaimed movie director David Lynch.

Spanning a period of forty years, David Lynch's widely respected films and television series include Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Lost Highway, and Mulholland Drive. However, his prolific visual art production, which began even before his films, has rarely been seen.

This catalogue of his artistic output, published on the occasion of a large-scale exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris, covers a wide variety of disciplines: painting, photography, drawings, sculpture, furniture, music, and "moving pictures." His art echoes his films in theme and aesthetic, yet offers viewers a fresh and more intimate glimpse into his singular universe. The book also contains several essays that analyze his artworks, as well as a conversation with Lynch, interviewed within the context of the show. 469 illustrations in color.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This self-authored and picture-heavy (469 color ilustrations) catalog to a recent eponymous exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris presents a sundry of peculiar artistic work by Lynch, who is probably more famous for his films (e.g., Blue Velvetand Eraserhead). Even so, it offers up a rare opportunity to explore his curious multidisciplinary talents: e.g., painting, photography, sculpture, and furniture. The minimal text precludes the need for a table of contents or an index. That said, transcribed among the artwork are a conversation on Lynch's art between philosopher Boris Groys and filmmaker Andrei Ujica and an interview with the artist by journalist Kristine McKenna. Those who really can't be bothered to read this text can instead insert the two accompanying CDs and listen to the conversations while contemplating Lynch's artwork-which, by the way, may be considered by some a bit too risqué for younger audiences. Recommended for special libraries with a contemporary art and/or film studies focus.
