24 pp. Nearly new. Inscribed by artist and dated 2006. 17 color plante. A catalog of a Gary Bolding painting exhibition from October 2006 to January 2007. Essay by Roberta Smith Favis. An introduction to the exhibition states: "For more than 20 years, Gary Bolding has worked toward creating exquisitely polished, often surrealistic paintings that take thoughtful, but humorous looks at art historical and pop culture references. In paintings such as Man with a Flaming Wiener, he packs together layer upon layer of self-referential and more broadly cultural material. Most recently, however, Bolding has moved into an entirely different mode of painting: richly textured, highly abstracted, subtly colored, and large-scale. This new work, still layered to a strong degree, brings the imagery of his paintings back to the surface of the canvas, replacing a Renaissance view of the painting as window with a thick impasto that projects from the wall." Many of his more recent works carry the whimsical label "O.D.I.O" for "of decorative interest only." A professor ofaArt at Stetson University, Bolding has had one-person exhibitions in venues throughout Florida, the Southeast, Europe and Mexico. The front and rear covers of the catalog show a detail of his abstract "S.P.F.A.H. No. 1XL" Size: 8vo -- 9 in Tall By 12 in Wide, horizontal Format
