About this product
- DescriptionTo Joy is an illustrated guide through the labyrinthine imagination of contemporary artist Sebastiaan Bremer - part-intelligentsia, part-phantasmagoria, part-secret journal. His works explode with energy as his obsessively-painted white dots rise over his photographic canvases like clouds of smoke. Born in Amsterdam, Bremer creates his subjects from a swirling ring of psychedelic/art historical/personal anecdotal ecstasy. Sex, death, family, art, history, love and lust come in and out of focus as the imagery morphs into layers of alchemy and meaning. Charlotte Cotton, esteemed independent writer and curator, introduces the book with an essay outlining the importance of Bremer's contribution to contemporary photography. Supplemented with Bremer's own personal writings - like an intimate studio visit of his artistic practice - and an essay by Gregory Volk, an art critic for Art in America and professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, this visual book reads and flows like an autobiographic vel.
