Rate this:
Simon Mee is an important mid-career cartist who draws inspiration from every day surroundings, art history and the news. He pushes, pulls and prodds at life in all its messiness and humour through the use of art history and its iconography. The book shows some of his well known art from The Suburban Suite series through to his "Folly" inspired works. To help understand the significance of his work and three writers - Eliza Gluckman, Jane O'Neill and Dr Michael Vale. These writers provide three different perspectives, a broader international conext (Eliza Gluckman), a specific theoretical understanding (Dr Michael Vale) and a personal aspect (Jane O'Neill). Gordon Craig - Curator, QUT Art Museum "Mee's paintings are luscious in nature but before the viewer can be seduced by Mee's works of art, they jolt one's sensibilities." Robert Nelson - The Age "Haunts and Follies curator Simon Mee has himself created learned pieces of symbolism in unusually good drawing, with multiple figures and coherent space."
