- Full Description
From the editors and publisher of Spectrum, a stunning art book on a unique and superlative creator whose imagination knows, quite literally, no bounds. Rich and expressively rendered, Ilene Meyer's oil paintings wrap viewers in the mists and myths of creation, exploring fantastical creatures and imaginary landscapes with piercing clarity and passion. As surreal as Picasso or Dali, this glossy gallery introduces sci-fi and New Age visualists to the first full-scale retrospective collection of Meyer's work.
Invoking themes of ecology, conservation, culture, and civilization, of fantasy and storytelling, Meyer's techique alone would make us buy this book. But add to that her intricate detail and surreal themes, that draw you into each picture so that you MUST study every corner to find hidden, highly detailed extras that could have easily been missed. Meyer's work is a cultural sensation in Japan and the subject of numerous articles and interviews and a documentary film.
From the publisher of Spectrum and the Frank Frazetta artbook trilogy, this is every bit as good, but just tackling an artist not well known to us in the comics and fantasy art world. We've liked her work since this first appeared, so it's delightful to be able to introduce her again to our customers, at a price that should compel you to take a look. I strongly feel you will be glad that you did.
This is the first collection of Ilene Meyer paintings to be published in the U.S.
