Published by the Butler Gallery of Kilkenny, Ireland, in conjunction with Sandlin's recent exhibit there, this 160-page full colour catalogue is now available stateside, here at Copacetic.A treasure trove of visionary art, Wonderfool World delves deep down into the primordial ooze seeping out of and dripping into the bottomless underworld of sin while simultaneously revealing that it lies just below the surface of the eternal infinity of salvation.Shopping, shooting, drinking, driving, war and sex are, for Sandlin, inexorably joined with beauty, innocence, hope, peace and love as two sides of the coin of the realm of our contemporary DreAmerican "land"-scape.David Sandlin is a true original, a pioneer exploring unmapped terrains of America's unconscious. This book holds the rich, ripe and totally unique fruit of a thirty year career spent intermingling fine arts and comics. While quite a few artists have, in recent years, headed out to explore this terrain for themselves, only Robert Williams and, maybe, Joe Coleman have been at it as long and have as impressive a body of work; Sandlin's vision is, however, without a doubt the one that speaks to us most directly. It is the single most cogently formulated contemporary expression of an America caught in the vise of sin and redemption that we have come across.Included in this volume -- beautifully designed by Fabio Soletti -- are introductory essays by John Carlin and Carlo McCormick, as well as conversations with the artist conducted by Carlin and Dan "Picturebox" Nadel. Make sure you give this one the once over when you're in the shop, and/or check out this online gallery of his work.
