More details: This large-format, full-color monograph by contemporary artist Jason Jägel features over 200 images from Jägel’s career, largely focusing on his current practice. His sometimes-loose, sometimes-tight narrative gouache paintings populate this oversize publication. Music references, family life, and the humming buzz of the street are often found in a single, sprawling image. His work includes fictional and actual album cover paintings, records made of paper, narrative vinyl “grooves” made of pencil and paintings inspired by specific songs, albums and artists. Contributors include Madlib, Jeff Jank, Nate Denver.
