LESLIE SHOWS: HEAP OF ELEMENTS
Published by The Headlands Center for the Arts, this book features the work of Leslie Shows. A Bay Area based artist, Shows has been racking up rave reviews and awards since graduating from California College of the Arts and winning last year's SECA award from the SFMOMA. Her signature style of large landscapes are meticulously created by using a combination of paint, foam, collage, glitter and it seems anything else she can get her hands on. The cumulative effect is powerful and dazzling. (if you havent figured out yet, we are huge fans of her work)
A great feature of this book is all the detail shots, you really get a sense of how each piece is constructed. The title of the book is very fitting as there are tiny images that make up the larger composition. These will not be available for long.
Each book comes in a hand-painted, signed, and numbered dust jacket.
