Summary
An all-new collection of paintings and sculpture by art legend Robert Williams. First exhibited at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery in early 2015, the work in this oversized, hardcover exhibition catalog is accompanied by insightful essays by the artist. -- "The current international capitol of artistic sophistication is New York City. Ever since the end of the Second World War, every small city in the United States that has an art community has looked to New York for cultural parenting. However, an interesting anomaly has developed over the years. Sophistication, like any other folkway, travels slowly with misinterpretations happening along the way. By the time high culture reached the West Coast it had traded its Brooks Brothers suit for cut-offs, a Hawaiian shirt, and flip-flops. Art on the West Coast, as much as it tries to maintain blue blood affectations shows mutations. It just doesn't have the aloof adroit coldness the Eastern Seaboard art society seems to portray." - Robert Williams, from his introduction to Slang Aesthetics
