Item description for David Shrigley by Neil Mulhoalland Frederic Paul...
To paraphrase the essayist of this tidy volume, Glasgow is neither here nor there, but then neither is Paris or Milan or New York. If each strives to be the center of the world, they do it primarily by establishing their brand-name products as better than someone else's. The vernacular is universal and the particular is general. What has value in Glasgow therefore has value elsewhere. And thus David Shrigley creates drawings, sculptures, installations and photographs that are no less but no more than a heroic act because they inspire the memory of sensations that are incongruous, repressed and sometimes just simply unpleasant. Featuring a thorough sampling of recent work, a conversation with the artist and the aforementioned essay.

Shirgley pleases Jul 26, 2005
How can you not love anything drawn or sculpted by this man! The book has many of Shrigley's quirky sketches plus the added bonus of seeing some of his sculptures...which are outstanding in their construction. It's so good, I'm seeking more of his published material! Good on you this site for stocking this! PS: The image of the nude water skier is not the cover for the book...It's Shrigley's dog chewing on a cast of the artists hand! Hilarious!!!
