Naked Women
East Hampton: Enoc Perez, 2013. Opposing pages with silver leaf have the tendency to stick, creating slightly different artworks on each opening; binding is a bit slack due to the heaviness of the added artwork; a near fine copy.. Unique artists' book. Quarto. SIGNED, dated, and marked "East Hampton" by Enoc Perez on the rear pastedown. Original artists' book, in which Perez has transformed a kitschy 1980s era soft-focus pornographic photobook, collaging and painting over the illustrations with acrylic paint and silver leaf. The artist has additionally adhered 2 polaroids, several reproductions of his work, including paintings from his forthcoming Picasso series, and 6 original works on paper to the book's boards and internal pages. The resulting mash-up challenges perceptions of collecting by presenting an object that is no longer just a book, but does not neatly conform to art world standards. That Perez chose this form to begin his study of Picasso, no easy task for any artist, is a testament to the creative energy that can be unleashed by an artist who can see beyond the canvas, to the page. The page is the canvas, and the book is the art.
