The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed

Item Description

Signed copy of my first book, The Pulse of Mixed Media, released by North Light Books in March 2012 and which will ship in the US via Media Mail, which takes approximately one week.

If you gave 100 artists the same set of art supplies and asked them to create, you would end up with 100 unique works of art. This is because the magic ingredient in every artwork is the artist, who brings his or her own history, personality, creativity, and personal perspective to the pieces that they create. It is this magic that is the subject of The Pulse Of Mixed Media.

This is not your typical how-to guide. Instead, you will be taken on a journey deep within the soul of the artist. Much like an archaeological dig, this book goes below the surface to uncover the inner workings of the creative mind. Imagine that you have been invited to have an intimate discussion with all of your favorite artists: a one-on-one show and tell. You can ask them anything, no holds barred, and hear first-hand the personal stories behind their artwork. This is what you will find on the pages of this book.

The Pulse of Mixed Media grew out of my online artist survey The Pulse. In the book, 31 spotlight artists and 103 additional contributors generously share their most intimate thoughts and feelings by providing answers to a series of personal questions. Some of these questions focus on their art, for example the art material they could not live without and the messages they hide in their artwork. Other questions focus on the artist, such as their art-related regrets, the obstacles that they have faced, and the one person in their life with the most creative impact.

But what is an art book without art? You will also find new artwork created by the artists in response to a series of prompts.  See how they use their artwork to express anger, passion, and vulnerability. Find out about the artists’ obsessions, secrets, and fears. Discover how they see themselves in their self-portraits. Each artist reveals the personal meaning behind each work of art, bringing your understanding and appreciation of the work to a deeper level.

Join me and all the artists on an adventure that will make you a true art insider. Tap into the zeitgeist of social media and reality television, where people bare their thoughts and share their innermost selves. After reading this book, you may never look at art or the artist the same way again. It’s time to take The Pulse of Mixed Media.
