Abstract

Simon Mee is an important mid-career artist who draws inspiration from every day surroundings, art history and the news. He pushes, pulls and prods at life in all its messiness and humour through the use of art history and its iconography. The book shows some of his well known art from The Suburban Suite series through to his 'Folly' inspired works. These writers provide three different perspectives, a broader international context (Eliza Gluckman), a specific theoretical understanding (Dr Michael Vale) and a personal aspect (Jane O'Neill).
