Description

One of the most exciting and intuitive painters of his generation, channeling a uniquely American perspective on our current moment.
Jules de Balincourt burst onto the art scene in the early 2000s and has been a critical and commercial success since then. What curators and critics saw in the work was a painterly language that was as singular as it was insightful--a faux-naif style to communicate highly developed and sophisticated ideas about the nature of government and communities, no doubt inspired by post 9/11 America as well as the artist's very unconventional upbringing in quasi-hippy communes of Southern California in the late 1970s.
In this most comprehensive book on the artist's work accompanying a major mid-career retrospective, the entirety of the artist's oeuvre is considered. Layered throughout the book are Balincourt's many reference materials, everything from newspaper clippings to textiles from South America. In a comprehensive essay, Richard Flood addresses the various aspects of the artist's work.
