Overview

Visionary apocalyptic painter Joe Coleman explores in excruciating detail his fascination with the junctions between saint and sinner, sacred and profane, holy and horrifying, as shown in this book's full-color plates. Using a single-hair brush and jeweler's magnifying lenses, Coleman packs his canvases with hallucinatory detail. Legendary in the world of lowbrow art, his work shows the technical skill of Robert Williams and the subject matter of a serial killer's dreams: terrifying and beautiful at once.
