Overview

Reveals the contemporary art phenomenon of disrupted realism through the paintings of 43 artists at its core.

Profoundly shaped by the events, forces, and overflow of today's disjointed, social-media-heavy life, these artists' paintings are “disrupted” stylistically, thematically, or sometimes both.

They allow us to appreciate how art relates to the "super-fast, simultaneous, almost dizzyingly paced scrolling" of our lives.

• Foreword by artist Nicholas Wilton, founder of Art2Life
• Features a special essay on artist Jenny Saville, who has inspired many contemporary representational artists to disrupt their art
• More than half of the artists are from outside the US; includes women and BIPOC artists
• Artists' comments presented in an engaging question-and-answer style
• Artists include Casey Baugh, Jenny Saville, Joseph Lee, Ruprecht von Kaufmann, Justin Mortimer, and dozens more
• Art writer and curator John Seed is the foremost authority on disrupted realism and is the author of Disrupted Realism: Paintings for a Distracted World
