Peter Saul is a great agitator of ideas and forms. The elastic quality of his easily identified figures are central to a style of art that doesn't recognize the conventions of either Pop Art or glorified minimalism. His paintings, often grand-scale, nearly run away from their supports; their loud, violent colors set the eye spinning. Saul's caustic humour sinks its teeth into America, lambasting the consumer society of the West. No detail is spared, and the many self-portraits reveal that Saul himself is part of this massacre. His loose, psychotic figures in vibrant colors spark laughter and wonder. This book, conceived as a tribute, provides a representative look at Peter Saul's work from the 1950s to the present. His work is still as insolent and explosive today.Decron, Benoit is the author of 'Peter Saul' with ISBN 9782850563607 and ISBN 2850563609.
