The mystical and the surreal combine in beautiful conceptual work by Matt Mahurin. Soft images of a strange documentary nature are graphic and thoughtful representations of Mahurin's perceptions of his world. Painterly, close up color portraits provide the viewer with a more private look at Mahurin's own inner spirit. This book of Matt Mahurin's work spares no expense in production. The beautiful black faux suede cover, with elegant gold and red title stamped is a telling prelude to the work that is held within.
A Very Fine copy of this beautifully produced monograph.
