Further is the catalog of a group exhibition featuring works by artists Mars-1, NoMe Edonna, Oliver Vernon, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Damon Soule, David Choong Lee, and Robert Hardgrave. Further brings together the seven artists and their varied takes on contemporary abstraction, mysticism, futurism, and surrealism. Starting with their first book, 4 Words (2003), and continuing the journey with their second book, Convergence (2005), this book is, as the title suggests, the latest peek into the artists' visual adventures. The aim of this book is to document and present the symbiotic relationship between artists and friends who share a visual dialogue. This dialogue influences their individual styles, sometimes emanating from a peripheral, collective unconscious -- a feedback loop of ideas that move freely, mutating over time and taking shape as visual thought-forms. Ultimately these expressions make their way through the individual artist's lens and filter. Edition of 3000. Full color, paperback.
