The big PR push with magazine articles and such wont start until Monday so consider this a soft release for fans only as there are only 200 copies left. Blog readers and mailing list subscribers get early access.. The book is finally ready to unleash.
‘It’s all about blending spiritual thinking with the man machine and the aesthetic of body horror.’
That was a quote from the writer Daniel Kalder. I felt it summed up Monochromatic Beginnings perfectly. This is a collection of personal works that I hold dear , done just before the movie work took over. At that time I was working towards exhibitions. I had a couple of shows in New York at the Last Rights Gallery , and a great spot at the WGT in Germany. Nothing major but they where building blocks. The detail of Monochrome was my passion, the tone was spiritual desolation, connecting with the future self. A future version of nature....and then movie work appeared and everything changed.
This book is about coming full circle , about revisiting and rekindling those earlier times. It has been a real pleasure to create and I truly hope you enjoy it.
There will only be around 250 available as I see it as a niche /collectors item and I like it that way. Amazon wont get a slice of this one!.
