Martin Eder — Parasites
2018 Hardback 148pp 315 x 240 mm (13 x 10 inches) Text by Hugh Allan and Jane Neal Conversation with Thomas Girst Published by Other Criteria Books ISBN 978-1-906967-96-3
Martin Eder’s paintings are dominated by a shifting palette of vivid colour and hyperreal depictions of contrasting textures. His subjects, which range from oversized pets to nude men and women, question received ideas of value, taste, and ‘high’ and ‘low’ art. Published to accompany the largest solo exhibition to date for the German artist, held at Newport Street Gallery, London (September 2018 – January 2019), this hardback presents a selection of Eder’s work from the past fourteen years, with installation shots. Also included is text by Jane Neal and curator Hugh Allan, and a conversation between Eder and author Thomas Girst.
