The Doorway to Joe: The Art of Joe Coleman

The Doorway to Joe: The Art of Joe Coleman

By (artist): Joe Coleman
Finallty, the complete monograp with all the work of the unique and subversive artist Joe Coleman

The visions of Joe Coleman; monstre sacré of the New York City art scene, infamous for his explosive performances and the eschatological sentiments of his icon-like paintings; have often been described as subtended by binary oppositions—the sacred and the profane, sinfulness and morality, the hero and the outcast, the artist within and/or against the rest of the world. These contradictory forces coexist, dividing us all, and Coleman’s paintings, like obsidian mirrors, reflect them in their perpetual and often disquieting negotiation.
