Product Details

By: Attila Richard Lukacs & Michael Morris 

Attila Richard Lukacs is one of Canada's most talented and controversial contemporary artists. He is best known for his epic paintings that depict masculine, homoerotic imagery, featuring figures such as gay skinheads and military cadets. His work has been exhibited at documenta in Kassel, Germany, as well as in New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Cologne, Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, among others; he has also had numerous shows, including the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Alberta.

A co-publication between Arsenal Pulp Press,Presentation House Gallery of North Vancouver, andthe Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, this will be the first book to document the work of this important artist, from an unusual perspective--a collection of some1,200 full-colour Polaroid images (twelve per page)taken by Lukacs over the past twenty years as corereferents for his paintings, assembled and collaged by Vancouver artist and curator Michael Morris.

Lukacs regularly uses a Polaroid camera as part of his artistic process, using his friends and acquaintances in Berlin, New York, Vancouver and elsewhere as models; taking advantage of the Polaroid's unique characteristics, his painterly sensibility is evident in the rich hues and romantic sensuality of these photographs, which are strikingly similar to the paintings that resulted from them.

The book will feature essays by award-winning author Michael Turner (Hard Core Logo, The Pornographer's Poem); Scott Watson, director of the Morris & Helen Belkin Gallery in Vancouver; and Vince Aletti, the American curator, critic, and journalist.

Stunning and bold, Polaroids: Attila Richard Lukacs and Michael Morris is a remarkable visual and written document on Lukacs, one of Canada's greatest artists working today, and his unique collaboration with Morris, a hugely important artist in his own right.
