Like Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha before him, Jack Pierson expresses himself through a variety of media. Drawn to stardom, melodrama, loneliness, and emotional narrative as subjects for his art, Pierson infuses his work with literal and visual references to lost love, sexual longing, faded glamour, fleeting moments, and sentimental musings.This book will contain approximately 200 works organized into five sections that echo the prevalent themes in Pierson's oeuvre: Riches and Fame, Desire Despair, Rented Rooms, Another Time Another Place, and Ghosts. A subversive playfulness and an erotic undercurrent run throughout, especially in the photographs of men, including never-before-published celebrity portraits.Surveying more than twenty years of the artist's career, this beautifully designed volume marks a milestone for all fans of Pierson's art.
