Painting has always seemed torn between an inward and an outward gaze: between vision and perception, between our dreams and the concrete, highly politicized conditions framing our comprehension of the world and what it might become. Today is no dierent. After a period in which the medium has been dominated by process-based abstraction, the gure – and representation with it – is ascendant again. But, if the 1990s and 2000s saw artists such as John Currin distorting classical form while others, following Gerhard Richter, mimicked photography, today’s figuration displays a distinctly different character. Gone, for the most part, are the echoes of old masters; gone, too, are the blurs of photorealism. What takes their place, instead, is a highly idiosyncratic approach ltered through pronounced aect, comic-book and sci- aesthetics, dreamy narratives and an eagerness to engage with our political moment without forfeiting the sensuousness of the medium.

David Geers (Sotheby's). 

 

This first book of what promises to be an exciting trilogy by the author of Funny Papers introduces four "moments" or worlds. De Haven weaves a complex tale of "intermoment" intrigue involving the birth of a monster and the imminent destruction of the universe. As strange characters and events begin to appear on Earth (the human world in the Moment of Kemolo) journalist Peter Musik recovers his memory and recalls his vendetta with the pharmaceuticals billionaire and the evil retired major who stole his mind with their "idiot drugs." But now strange voices are appearing in Peter's head--the voice of Jack the Walker who is visiting from the world of Lostwithal, and of Geeb, his earthly companion. De Haven's exuberant imagination conjures such characters as the dread Mage of Manse Seloc, whose face teems with crawling slugs; and Lita, a witch who turns into a wasp, stings her subject and brings that person's knowledge and memories to her master. All the characters are given life--even those cameos who meet quick, gruesome deaths. Horror, humor and a passel of plot twists spice up the inventive tale. 

Tom De Haven is the author of several novels, including Derby Dugan’s Depression Funnies (winner of the 1997 American Book Award), Funny Papers, The End-of-Everything Man, and The Last Human. A frequent contributor to Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times, he also teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University and is a licensed private investigator. He lives in Midlothian, Virginia.
