James Gleeson: images from the shadows
James Gleeson, a Surrealist painter and poet, produces images that originate in the depths of his psyche and emerge from the shadows of his soul. His career spans from 1938 to the present day, and encompasses works created in response to wartime. The haunting and beautiful "Garden" paintings, his heroic "psychoscapes" and experimental collages, and the most recent "cosmic" paintings, explore the undercurrents within the subconscious mind. This fascinating and beautifully illustrated book contains 12 new color plates. This edition replaces 976-8097-63-9.
