Overview

James Havard's highly individual work draws inspiration from Native American Indian and African tribal cultures, as well as cave paintings and children's drawings - and is often full of inner demons and dark, multicultural symbols. Yet they are also affectingly humourous, endowed with qualities that we recognise immediately as inherent to the human condition. This publication, the first extensive monograph of Havard's work, focuses on the past two decades of his oeuvre, presenting painting, sculpture, and printwork. It includes more than 120 colour plates and illuminating texts that describe his process and artistic development, and that situate this body of work in the context of the artist's life. Havard's work is included in many collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Smithsonian Institution. A full, illustrated chronology and documentation of his career complete this comprehensive tome.
