First book to collect the work of L.A. underground art world's wunderkind. Beautifully produced and co-published with La Luz de Jesus, this is an objet d'art in itself, revealing the complexity of Elizabeth McGrath's sweetly twisted creatures, giving a glimpse of what the Island of Misfit Toys might have become had it been saved by Satan rather than Santa. Upon first viewing, McGrath's colourful, mummified creatures are gothic oddities, but their undeniable artistry immediately draws one in, revealing their touching curiosities, transforming their grotesqueness into tortured beauty. Each piece is meticulously sculpted, dressed and decorated in exquisite detail.
Elizabeth McGrath has been featured in numerous international group shows and a solo show at La Luz de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles.
