One of the most important young artists to have emerged from Los Angeles in the 1990s, Manuel Ocampo updates the tradition of political allegorists like Gericault, Goya, and Daumier. In this beautifully illustrated catalogue, Ocampos exuberant works incorporate high and low, academic and popular, sacred and secular images and textscreating supercharged canvases with a blatant disregard for stylistic and idiomatic consistency. Gutsy, bold, and filled with sociopolitical critique, Ocampo practices the art of the alchemist: Transforming horror into exquisite beauty, history into art, purgatory into salvation. Essays by Chon Noriega and Kevin Power, and a conversation between Ocampo and Daniel J. Martinez. Edited by Pilar Perez.
