The wood panels, shipped from a manufacturer in Iran who Avini has never met, contrast sharply with the silkscreen ink-rendered feathers painted in shades of emerald green, indigo, bright yellow, and oscillating shades of red and purple.

—Curator and critic Bob Nickas and Nic Planck provide a critical discourse for iconic British post-punk band The Fall, in particular frontman Mark E. Smith. The pair review the band’s seminal album The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall track by track, revealing the group’s uniquely brilliant disarray.“The Fall have been around for a very long time, still going, influenced so many other groups, and have released any number of great records over the years. You think that one of the would have merited a slim volume by now, but no, the twats at 33½ were too busy putting out books on Radiohead, The Stone Roses, Patty Smyth, and U-fucking-2.”

It’s a sequence that can be traced back to 2008, when the female body first started appearing in his sketchpads and on his canvases. Her sudden appearance seemed millennia away from his early abstract work, so how did he find her? How did she spring into existence?”

The unknown painter presents us scenes of this romance by the technology of terra-verde painting. The cycle doesn’t show us singular scenes, it is continuously represented and arranged by architectural elements and different landscapes.”

—A self-taught artist from Columbus, Ohio, Birdie Lusch was a factory worker for most of her adult life. She began making art as a teenager, producing books and albums filled with drawings, collages, and poetry. This facsimile of one of her sketchbooks explores the numerous forms of flowers in vases. The works are wonderfully varied even as they follow the same compositional formula: a pot filled with flowers sitting on a tabletop. Lusch worked with whatever materials happened to be on hand, repurposing them into her subject matter. Here, shirts, rugs, and maps are refashioned into vases while pastry, meat, and carpeting are transformed into flowers.

—Robert Grosvenor’s photography presents itself as a manifest extension of his sculptural work. The 32 images in this book reveal an artist interested in the space between objects, as much as the objects themselves, and how form and texture can be combined in the natural world. "At times, no intervention is necessary for a deadpan humor to effortlessly assert itself, as when Grosvenor takes a picture of concrete steps which have been painted a light sky blue. But they have only been painted on the top, suggesting a carpet that has melted over the steps, a sense of slow motion in neat parallel to a pair of blue garden hoses that might as well be lines traced by the water flowing through them. We can’t help but wonder if the world, more often than not, arranges itself to be seen."

—Published on the occasion of William’s 2014 exhibition at Canada Gallery, this book displays the artist’s vibrant, surreal, large-scale inkjet and air brush on canvas works. The term “Paintings” takes on new meaning when viewing the mix of unconventional portraiture."The idea of a mistake is often a refreshing punch of energy in artistic works. There is something psychedelic about puncturing our expectations. In Michael’s case, he is creating a somewhat removed digital picture field—incorporated into that is the assumed information that this was a thought out mechanical process that took time and planning—and then interrupting that staid existence with spray paint of the seemingly most casual type."
