Eric White’s paintings tour a netherworld populated by movie stars, political figures, and ordinary people stretched and distorted and placed in bizarre landscapes but always disturbingly recognizable. Dubbed the anti-Norman Rockwell, White employs a meticulous melding of hyperrealism and surrealism to make his dark dreams. Typical of his work is Critical Path, a black-comic blast at the Hollywood dream machine. Here Dorothy from the The Wizard of Oz is shown brushing the teeth of a terrifying oversized Toto. With over 100 illustrations, this book sumptuously surveys the past decade of White’s achievements.
