Stars: Even The Sun With All It's Warmth Is Detached by Anthony Campuzano

Stars: Even The Sun With All It's Warmth Is Detached by Anthony Campuzano

$ 25.00


Anthony Campuzano is known for his use of found language in his drawings, using text from newspaper headlines, Wikipedia entries, paperback novel covers, and song lyrics. His new book, Stars: Even The Sun With All Its Warmth Is Detached, created in collaboration and with support from the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art, is a collection of his collages that incorporates images from supermarket tabloids and ruminates on the simultaneous brilliance and self-destruction of many celebrity figures.

Campuzano notes that in addition to collages, the book includes an essay that reflects on his creative process and the relationships between stars, paparazzi, and the public. "I hope people will look closer and take  time with the writing," he says. "I use a lot of writing in my work already and sometimes I don't think that people always read it enough times. Hopefully this book will be a sort of guide into some of the decisions I make in regards to the other work."
