Catalog is paired with three essays by various writers. All illustrations are captioned and occasionally accompanied with quotes by the artist.

The intriguing art of Ryan McGinness is here brought to light through the insight of three distinguished scholars, as well as the inspiring quotes of the artist himself that complete the catalog. The volume thus allows a rare penetration into the world of the artist, and the true meaning of his puzzling work. McGinness' art has a profound philosophical scope that is expressed in various ways in his productions, and the essays shed a new light on some otherwise abstruse aspects of his output. His works include painting, drawing, sculpture and numerous other forms, that are displayed in full-color in this beautiful catalog. The quotes along the way will engage them into a reflection on the meaning of that art and how it can change our view on life.

Ryan McGinness (b. 1972) is an American artist who uses the visual language of public signage, corporate logos, and contemporary iconography to convey his special message to his audience. His work includes paintings, sculptures, and environments, and he is noted for his extensive vocabulary of graphic drawings.
