Alaska by Matías Duville( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Argentine artist Matias Duville's 'Alaska' project began in 2008, when he started to produce prolific drawings of Alaska, a place he had never visited. The aim of his project lay not in the accurate evocation of the country, but in the rendering of the place as it existed in his imagination - through fantastical and often nightmarish vistas and desolate landscapes inhabited only by remnants of human existence. In 2009 Duville expanded this initial project, traveling to Alaska and back, allowing the observable reality he found there - and later his memory of it - to infiltrate the fictional world he had created in his studio. Befitting the tripartite structure of Duville's project, this publication is divided into three volumes. Each book presents respectively the charcoal and crayon drawings Duville produced in the three stages comprising his visionary enterprise: before Alaska, during Alaska, and after Alaska

With inspirations as diverse as Old Master portraits, pin-ups and mid-20th century B-movies, John Currin continues to paint ideational yet challengingly perverse images of female subjects, from lusty nymphs to more ethereal feminine prototypes. This book features an interview with the artist and six essays by Wells Tower

Tin House( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the website: We know, it feels as if we just had sex, but that was thirteen years ago, with our wildly popular and still-whispered-about inaugural Sex Issue. So, like a panda with a low libido, we're back in the saddle, but this time a little more jaded. In "The Famous Actor," Jess Walter wickedly subverts the power dynamic between a celebrity and a would-be groupie, and Wells Tower turns a story of marital infidelity on its ass. For a series of mini-essays, our simple prompt of "Awkward Positions" cast a Barry-White-like spell on D. A. Powell, Sy Montgomery, Susie Bright, Melissa Febos, and Naomi Jackson. Not surprisingly, the poets--including Saeed Jones, Bianca Stone, and Melissa Stein--get us all hot and bothered with conflicted desires. Whatever your sexual proclivities, we hope that you secretly (or not so secretly) get a rise out of this issue
