“Heads, 44 was born when artist Mat Brinkman left the wet ink that he used to bleed from one sheet of rice paper to another, forming the basis of the following drawing, which in turn informed the next, etc. The resulting series, which is printed on clear vellum to recreate the effect, suggests an evolutionary chain of monstrous heads, each taking on new characteristics. Over the 88 pages of the oversized book, Brinkman’s expressive lines and lines overlap and merge, drawing the reader into abstract anatomical gore fields.” Fine. Card Covers. (#986) $495.00
