Mark Batty Publisher proudly presents its newest art book, Hunt & Gather: Discovering New Art by author and London Miles Gallery (UK) curator Tina Ziegler, showcasing a contemporary view of international art featured in galleries and media across the globe. This striking collection of surrealism, pop art, illustration, collage, graphic design and mixed media represents many of today’s most boundary-pushing artists. Aspects of this collection are dark, at times macabre, but these images are complemented by arrestingly playful pieces, and accompanied by first-person texts that shed light on how and why these individuals make their art.
Dedicated to fostering the relationships between artists and art enthusiasts, Ziegler has selected an array of artists to contribute to the book. From the rich, dark graphic stylings of Carrie Ann Baade, to the bright pop creations of Dave Pressler and the fantasies of Jason Jacenko; grotesque sculptures depicting death and the human condition from Emilio Subira, and the frightening, painstakingly detailed black-and-white pencils of Jon Beinart, each page is filled with jaw-dropping impressions of some of today’s most dynamic artworks.
“Whatever their medium of choice, these artists share a few common links,” says author Tina Ziegler. “Whether it’s the way they communicate, where they exhibit or who they attract, they are all part of a growing, cutting-edge movement. What makes Hunt & Gather unique is not only the selection of artists but the personalities that shine through from page to page.”
