Three New Books by Christopher Bucklow
To coincide with his solo major museum exhibition at the Southampton City Art Gallery in the UK, three new books have been published by Ball Press in association with the museum. 'Life on Mars' is an academic discussion of the paintings; the book is aimed at art students. 'Nantucket Sleighride' publishes the complete dreams, from 1986-2017, that the paintings derive from, including an Interpretive Index of Metaphors. 'Said Now, For All Time’ is the catalogue for the exhibition, and features essays by Alex Faulkner and Martin Harrison, author of the Francis Bacon Catalogue Raisonne.
