Art of Lists
About the Book
Who are the real nerds? The true Jacks? The great second bananas? Are there some lifesavers beyond those sugared candies? And who exactly has nice pipes other than neighborhood plumbers? Art of Lists answers these questions and forty others. It’s an artistic interpretation of America’s preoccupation with pop culture lists. Each theme is captured in an original painting, a list of free-associated names or thoughts, and a poem. The art has been featured in serious galleries. The litanies are quirky and subjective, and as is the accompanying verse. The result? A visual and verbal marriage of contemporary, everyday life.
