Lari Pittman: Declaration of Independence
The incredible detail and scale of Lari Pittman’s mesmerizing paintings are gloriously recreated in this lushly illustrated retrospective book. One of the most prolific and exuberant painters of the past three decades, Lari Pittman creates works that mirror the social fabric of his time. This volume follows Pittman's trajectory as his visual language evolved and his technical mastery grew ever more sophisticated. From his early works—defiant affirmations of identity in the increasingly conservative 1980s—to his more recent subjects that feature emblems of cultural regression and commercialism, Pittman's paintings are uniquely operatic and ambitious. This book features over sixty paintings and thirty drawings, including Pittman's mural-scale series Flying Carpets.
