Closeout Price! By Shag. Something’s come undone. The intimate moments that have made Shag famous have been replaced by epic tableaus. Richly hued designer environments have given way to subtly de-saturated expanses. Characters who were once grounded in mid-century formality are teetering on the brink of chaos. This collection of new work showcases the largest, darkest and most thought provoking images Shag has ever created. The art is distinctly Shag, but it’s painted in shades of black humor, reminding us of demented Disneyland rides, with cavorting nude ladies, unearthly creatures. Baby Tattoo, 2009.

Description

Something’s come undone. The intimate moments that have made Shag famous have been replaced by epic tableaus. Richly hued designer environments have given way to subtly de-saturated expanses. Characters who were once grounded in mid-century formality are teetering on the brink of chaos. This collection of new work showcases the largest, darkest and most thought provoking images Shag has ever created. The art is distinctly Shag, but it’s painted in shades of black humor, reminding us of demented Disneyland rides, with cavorting nude ladies, unearthly creatures.

Unusual large, oblong format, in hardcover. Epilogue by Piet Agle. “Josh’s new work exhilarated and interested me in a way none of his previous art had. I called him immediately to tell him.

“Do you think people will see this as a repudiation of everything I’ve done in the past?” he asked.”

I wouldn’t say so, I think he’s just expanded his horizons with storytelling pictures that will fascinate and amaze his fans. It’s wild stuff.

This book is based on an exhibition of the same name, at Corey Helford Gallery, in Culver City in 2009.

Shag is an internationally acclaimed modern artist whose expertly rendered paintings are visual celebrations of life’s pleasures and indulgences. His work is instantly recognizable for its trademark combination of sly humor and vibrant colors. Until now…
