Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847836673, Hardcover)The first monograph on the popular New York-based artist Will Cotton, best known for his large-scale portraits of female nudes in candy-coated dreamlike landscapes. Will Cotton is best known for his depictions of “landscapes” composed of sweets: fondant frostings, peppermint sticks, marshmallows, and cotton-candy clouds often inhabited by languidly posed females. Executed with flawless skill and technique, Cotton’s work is an optical delight and is formally resonant with the influences of seventeenth-century rococo paintings, the nudes of Bouguereau and Cabanel, and the classic American pin-ups of George Petty and Alberto Vargas. Cotton’s figures are often inspired by models such as burlesque performers and fellow artists from the art, film, and music worlds.
This book-the artist’s first monograph-is a celebration of Cotton’s work in all mediums: prints, drawings, canvases, and public events. In addition to this elegantly designed trade volume, a limited edition of one hundred copies accompanied by a signed and numbered print will be available through Pace Prints.
