  • Joan Miro

    • Published: July 2009
    Considered one of the great artists of the 20th century Joan Miro has bequeathed a definitive body of work whose influence continues to grow over the years. Miro did not paint dreams but instead, through his works, provided the spectator with certain elements so that he would be the one that dreamed. He never worked under the influence of hypnosis, drugs or alcohol. Nevertheless, his artistic personality and the way he represented on canvas what inspiration dictated to him led Andre Breton to exclaim, ”Miro is the most surrealist of us all!” A creative force in the plastic field who felt an equal passion for the world, for the most daring poetic p-lays, a lover of objects and the bare truth of materials, Miro always revealed himself as an oneiric artist, a seeker after the constellations that inspired some of his finest works. With Jacques Dupin’s seminal essay in Miro, “The Birth of Signs”. Chronology, Bibliography. 78 illustratios.

    Recovering from a car crash in his daughter's home in Vermont, 72-year-old August Brill is unable to sleep, lying in bed, telling himself stories, struggling to push away thoughts about things he'd prefer not to dwell on. Instead of reflecting on his wife's recent passing and the death of his daughter's boyfriend in Iraq, Brill creates a vivid alternate reality of an America frought with civil strife. Brill's dream world is so vivid and dark that a soldier from this world is sent on a mission to assassinate Brill to bring an end to the dream, and thus the war. This post-modern reflection on the relationship between fantasy and reality also deals with war and grief. 180p.

    An old man sits in a room, with a single door and window, a bed, a desk and a chair. Each day he awakes with no memory, unsure of whether or not he is locked into the room. Attached to the few objects around him are one-word, hand-written labels, and on the desk is a series of vaguely familiar black-and-white photographs and four piles of paper.
