Glamidermist
By David Hevel

78 pages, 2010
San Francisco, CA
Softcover: US $44.95
Hardcover, ImageWrap: US $62.95

For the past decade Hevel has mined the detritus of celebrity gossip, revealing a culture that is mired in sensationalism to create a diverse collection of artworks that are delightful, depraved, and beautiful. Hoping to reveal the absurdity of American consumerism, the global economy, and the chaos of mass media, Hevel’s work juxtaposes mid-American aesthetics of taxidermy and floral arrangement with the gossip, glamour, and glitz of Hollywood royalty.
