Wayne White: Maybe Now I'll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wayne is a unique wordsmith, brilliantly juxtaposing irreverent and humorous phrases over existing thrift store paintings that together

create a completely original and fictional landscape. Influenced by both his upbringing in rural Tennessee and a very sophisticated

knowledge of art history, Wayne White’s sensibility is completely singular and distinctive.

Wayne White’s warped and perspectival words integrate into seemingly benign pastoral landscapes, creating a completely surreal

experience. Wayne’s expert painting chops and detailed attention to lighting and reflection place the “new” text directly in its “original”

setting. Text paintings such as “Donald Judd was a Son of a Bitch Wrecked His Train in a Whorehouse Ditch,” “Poon,” and “Maybe

Now I’ll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve,” are a welcome departure from the more-often-than-not self-aggrandizing art world.

In fact, this popularly priced, sumptuous monograph is FANFUCKINTASTIC!

Synopsis:

Wayne White: Maybe Now I'll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve is a monumental 400 page look at the deadpan, strange and endlessly mesmerizing body of work White has created in his 30 plus year career as a fine artist, illustrator, and director. Divided into two chapters and with an extended interview between Todd Oldham and the artist, this monograph first takes an intimate look at White's unpublished sketchbooks, drawings, and paintings during his tenure as co-creator of Pee Wee's Playhouse, music video director, and as art director for dozens of influential children's programs. 
 
This new popular edition of the work is, as Wayne would say, FANFUCKINTASTIC!

About the Author

Todd Oldham is one of the most beloved and mediagenic designers working today. Originally a couture fashion designer with several stores in New York, and a commentator on MTV's House of Style, Todd's career has evolved to include all areas of design, from film and photography to furniture and graphic art. Todd appears frequently as a consultant on NBC's Today, as well as on MTV's enormously popular Crib Crashers, for which Todd redesigns teenagers' homes in the likeness of their favorite stars' abode. Oldham designs his own line of dorm room furnishings for Target in addition to a line of furniture for La-Z-Boy, and he is currently developing a television series based on Handmade Modern. Most recently, he has become a contributing editor to ReadyMade magazine. He lives in New York City.
Artist Wayne White grew up in Tennessee and his nostalgia for his youth and Southern heritage is addressed in the rustic landscapes that he fills with monumental sized text.
