Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With Tomorrow's Scream is Elizabeth McGrath's second full-length monograph, including works from 2005 to 2012. One of the leading women of the pop surrealism movement, McGrath has an uncanny knack for creating dark, edgy, fantastical works layered with beauty, angst and significance. Influenced by the relationship between the natural world and the detritus of consumer culture, she sculpts, paints and builds endearing, often tragic, creatures from a wide range of materials including ceramic, cloth, paint, paper, gold leaf, rhinestones, shells and found objects. From dioramas to mixed media paintings to three-dimensional sculptures, each piece is infused with deep meaning - historical narratives, cultural references, environmental statements - while teeming with the charm, dazzle and beauty of a lovingly crafted - and lovable - object. Self-taught, Elizabeth McGrath has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums in the US and Europe including the American Visionary Art Museum and the Bristol City Museum and Gallery. Her first book, Everything That Creeps, was released in 2005. McGrath lives in Downtown Los Angeles with her husband, the artist Morgan Slade, their daughter Sadie Valentine Slade and hairless Chihuahuas Blue and King Tut.
