The first comprehensive monograph of visual artist Eric White, containing mostly previously unpublished work. Eric White generates a world of psychologically charged narratives in his masterfully executed and surreal figurative paintings. His work is inspired by cinema—especially the golden age of Hollywood—and an obscure pop culture seen through the lens of a satirical and fantastical schizophrenic dream logic. This book covers the breadth of his career so far, from his earliest acrylics, oils, and works on paper, to his subverted album cover paintings, work he describes as paranoid social realism, and his "1/3 Scale Retrospective" installations. White's work opens a window into an alternate universe, one that is distorted, dark, and extremely witty.
