Luke Ramsey launches INTELLIGENT SENTIENT?

Feb 6, 7-9 pm
Drawn & Quarterly and Lucky's present a launch party for Luke Ramsey's INTELLIGENT SENTIENT?! Luke will be on hand to celebrate the release of his new D+Q book, INTELLIGENT SENTIENT?. He will give a presentation from the book, which will be followed by a signing.

INTELLIGENT SENTIENT? is a loosely-told narrative of existential crisis. A transparent Keith Haring-inspired human wanders through a series of Luke Ramsey’s signature vividly-coloured, incredibly detailed dreamscapes, seemingly oblivious to its surroundings as it wonders what is nature? What is intelligence? What is love? Wordless but teeming, INTELLIGENT SENTIENT? is an exquisitely realized work by a visionary artist. (starfishian)… (more)
